Aberdaron Church 3/7

In the 1850s a new church, Eglwys Newydd, was constructed inland, but proved so unpopular that St Hywyn's was restored. The Welsh poet R. S. Thomas was minister at the church, which is a Grade I listed building.

Amazing catch on the light...perfect balance.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie, this area was quite light, the other end of the church was a bit shadowy.
Oh I love this POV!
Brian Walbey: I really liked this view through the arch.
This is very pleasant Brian.

It looks charming Brian
Brian Walbey: Difficult to tell it was rebuilt in the 19th. century.

I can see why the parishioners wanted this Church, Brian
Brian Walbey: And who can blame them Lisl, it is a delightful little church.

Impressive view, Brian. It looks like they have a wooden floor. Love the brick work here too.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a wooden floor. I wonder how much of the brickwork is original bearing in mind the church was rebuilt from a ruin in the 19th.century.
All that stone! I stand in awe when I see churches inside like this, Brian...as you already know. We didn't grow up seeing churches like this!
Brian Walbey: Difficult to tell it was completely rebuilt from a ruin in the 19th.century. Your USA churches might not be as old as ours but I would love the chance to go in some the older churches over there.

Who wants to church inland, when you can hear the and see the ocean from here. Great shot and you have the light well under control.
Brian Walbey: I especially lieked this POV through the archway. I suspect in times of storm the waves might wash over the church, it isn't very high above sea level.

I am not surprised about the listing Brian. I do like those round arches.
Brian Walbey: I really liked this view through the arch.
Winderful deep window there./
Brian Walbey: Goes to show just how thick the stone walls are doesn't it.
It has a special charm you don't see in many churches, Brian.
Brian Walbey: We really enjoyed our visit, there was quite a lot of other visitors but everybody seemed to be aware of others taking photos and made way for each other.

It looks such a peaceful building.
Brian Walbey: Despite there being quite a few other people there it was generally quiet and peaceful.
Fine old building.
Brian Walbey: It was completely rebuilt from a ruin in the 19th.centurybut some of it is very old indeed.

Brian Walbey: Thanks so much for looking at my blog Emily, I'm glad you are enjoying my pictures of this delightful little church.
It is a gem and this is a fine picture Brian
