Eglwys Gallgo Sant/St Gallgo Church, Llanallgo
Eglwys Gallgo Sant/St Gallgo Church, Llanallgo
Gallo, who founded this church early in the 6thC, was the son of Caw, a Pictish king, and brother of St Gildas and St Eugrad. Like many other old churches in Anglesey it underwent much restoration in Victorian time. It also became famous in the wake of the Royal Charter disaster of 1859 when 140 of the victims were buried in its churchyard. Charles Dickens visited the area and wrote about the disaster. During his visit Dickens stayed at the rectory with the vicar, the Rev. Stephen Roose Hughes
