Aberdaron on the Lleyn peninsular in North Wales has been the destination for spiritual pilgrims and saints for over 1600 years. Here they left the mainland in small boats for the crossing over to Bardsey Island where they would prepare for their final trip to the next life. It is said that there are 20,000 saints buried on the island.
Saint Hywyn’s church overlooks the sea where there has been Christian worship since the sixth century. When we visit on our Wild Wales Tour in October we will visit the church and the two water worn inscribed tombstones that were found nearby dating back to the fifth century.
