The weather was not very good when i visited Cwm yr Eglwys and I did not intend taking any pictures but when I saw the place I could not help myself, so what I am showing you is not very good Quality but I think it helps the imagination.
What caused this is written below.
The picture below shows us a model of the ship called the "Cwm Trader"
Below,some bilingual information about the type of ship that was in use during that period.
Below we can see all that is left of Brynach church and some of the burial ground. The wall you see on the right does help keep the sea out, but maintaining it along with safeguarding the remaining graves is obviously a costly project and worthy of support.
The grave seen here has a wall around it for protection against the elements. I was hoping to learn something about this grave but the surface of the stone was to badly weather beaten.
Pictures nearly always show sunny skies and crowded beaches, but it is not always so. This picture may help us to conjure up some idea of what it was like looking out to sea after the storm.
Autumn colors do help to cheer one up.
Cwm yr Eglwys is on Dinas Island and is can be found on the A478 road to Fishgard. The beach and Cwm yr Eglwys have only limited parking and access is via a small narrow country lane. I hope you found something of interest in this page. Thank you for calling Galw.
