South side of the Church of St Mary and All Saints, Conwy
The parish church in the centre of Conwy originated as the abbey church at Aberconwy Abbey, which was relocated to Maenan in the 1280s. The church was largely rebuilt at that time.

The metal grave cover bears the words 'We are Seven'. The grave supposedly contains the remains of seven brothers and sisters and has long been associated with William Wordsworth's poem of that name. Local tradition has it that Wordsworth was inspired to write the poem after seeing the grave, although he stated that the poem had been inspired by a conversation with a little girl
while visiting Goodrich Castle (near Ross on Wye) in 1793. The poem does contain two two of the girls siblings dwelling at Conway, so that may be the origins of the tale.
