St Mary's Church, Nefyn
St Mary's Church, Nefyn
The foundation of this ancient and, now, redundant church dates back to the 6th C. In the Middle Ages it was an important station on the pilgrim route to Bardsey and a priory was attached to it. Geraldus Cambrensis and Baldwin the Archbishop of Canterbury preached at the church on Palm Sunday 1188 during their recruitment campaign for the Crusades. They found, as Gerald testified, no shortage of recruits. The building now houses a maritime museum.
