Saturday Afternoon 26 June 2021
Llanerchymedd Village and church; Llwydiarth Esgob

We will visit this large village, well known in the 18th century for its Hiring Fair, and look at new work which is being done on its history and archaeology, and then move on to Llwydiarth Esgob which produced a group of interesting Neolithic artefacts and also had the only Anglesey cup and ring marked boulder. Members might like to have lunch in the Community Cafe in Llanerchymedd, if regulations allow.

Bodychen West of Llynfaes on B5109

Bodychen was a late Mediaeval House, similar in scale and importance to Cochwillan near Bangor, but now a ruin. In the 19th century it was used as a prison (with gallows on hill opposite). Earthwork remains of a garden survive. Road still known as ‘Prisoners Road’. Meet on the road at NGR SH 391 792 (2km west of Llynfaes turn left, c 300m on right).

A visit to Glyn with permission of Roger and Debbie Tebbutt we willl certainly visit the Viking site (see TAAS 2007) under the guidance of Roger and of Leona Huey who worked on the excavations. If Covid regulations allow we may see the 16th century plasterwork in the house. We may also visit the small megalithic tomb nearby and Llanbedrgoch church where early mediaeval burials were recently found.

Assemble at 2pm in the Car Park off the High Street in Cemaes Bay. Then taking in the Village Hall, a walk (300 yards) through the Cemaes valley, along the river Wygyr to the former Brickworks. After that, back along the path to the beach, and the Time-and-Tide Bell, with a short discussion led by RGW about the historic Attorney-General v Jones case of 1865 (ownership of manorial rights to the Cemaes beach). We will then

 walk up to Penrhyn to see the geology. Alternatively a short visit to the private Maritime Museum of Mr David Burkett Evans might also be possible for small numbers. Then back for tea in the Cemaes Heritage Centre, where there is also a village historical display.
