Llanfechell, Anglesey
Picture of Llanfechell
Llanfechell is situated 1 mile from Cemaes on the northern tip of Anglesey, North Wales. Nearby villages include the sea port of Amlwch to the north east, Llanrhyddlad to the south west, Bodewryd to the east and Llanfairnghornwy to the south west. The striking Parys copper mountains are just north east of Llanfechell. The village is named after its 12th century church, Mechell Church. Although it was built during the 1100s, the building was extended during the 13th, 14th and 16th century. The church is named after the son of Echwys ap Gwyn Gohoew, St Mechell, and his day is celebrated on 15th November. It is believed that the saint was buried here in Llanfechell. This small Anglesey village is renowned among geologists for the folded Rocks at Mynydd Mechell (Mechell Mountain). These special stones are pre Cambrian and have been recorded as some of the oldest rocks in the world. Many travellers visit the Isle of Anglesey for its myths and legends and the abundance of ancient burial chambers and standing stones that scatter the island. Llanfechell is no exception with a number of standing stones within the village and indeed the unique group of three standing stones known as the Llanfechell Stones that sit on the heath-land on the edge of the village. Other points of interest in the village include the 6 mills: Maen Arthur Mill, Pant y Gwydd Mill, Cafnan Water Mill, Cefn Coch Mill, Meddanen Water Mill and Pandy Cefn Coch Mill. There are also plenty of walks surrounding Llanfechell, which lead through famous gorse flowers and heather. The village is a thriving community that is reflected in the popularity of the local Inn the Cefn Glas. Whereas many village pubs are shutting their doors the Cefn Glas is a busy little pub with good beer and lively conversations that offers walkers a fine opportunity to slake their thirst.
