  St Marys Parish Church
by eddilowe

I didn't have a chance to have a look in the church but it's very picturesque from outside.

St Mary's Church is built on the site of a 7th century Augustinian Priory. It retains relics of the original building severely damaged by fire in the 13th century.

The Priory was said to have been devastated again by fire in the early 16th Century, and was finally dismantled or allowed to fall into ruin during the period 1536-1539 on the orders of Henry VIII, leaving only the Chapel standing. Not much remains of the original chapel apart from parts of the North and West walls which are believed to be 12th Century, along with other sections of the East wall which are 13th Century.

Address: Beddgelert village, Gwynedd
