Egryn Abbey Farm from the hillside.
In the 14thC Egryn was granted the right to have masses and other divine offices celebrated in its oratory, the establishment being then the Hospital of St Mary the Virgin which served the local poor and wayfarers. A Papal Letter of 1391 describes the place as being "situate between two arms of the sea called Traeth urtro (Artro) and Abermo (Barmouth)..in which the tide ebbs and flows twice a day as far as the mountains.." At the same time the land was farmed by Gruffudd ap Llywelyn ap Cynwrig a direct descendant of Osbwrn Wyddel (Osborn the Irishman). It is now owned by the National Trust.
