Overview

Possibly all that’s left of a vanished community

Standing in a lonely spot overlooking Lligwy Bay, little is known about the history of this ruined 12th-century chapel. The stone structure that stands today was probably erected on the site of an older, timber-built Celtic church in the 12th century, when Viking raids on Anglesey came to an end and life on the island became more stable and prosperous.

Capel Lligwy’s setting probably wasn’t always so solitary – it’s likely that the chapel is the only remnant of a sizeable community that was eventually abandoned by its inhabitants.
