Llangadwaladr Church is to be found close to the west coast of the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. The original church also known as St Cadwaladr's would probably have been built of wood and the present stone building is of perpendicular style and has various dates of construction from the 12th to the 19th Century. <br><br> The church contains some of the best ecclestiastical architecture in the county of Anglesey. The south chapel is a splendid example of very late Gothic, and the east window in the chancel contains the only medieval glass to survive in quantity on Anglesey. Externally the church offers fine examples of 19th century stone carving with a number of gargoyles built into the east and north walls.<br><br> But St Cadwaladr's is most renowned as the home to the Cadfan Stone. It is the most important gravestone in Anglesey and it demonstrates that the site was the burial ground associated with the royal court at Aberffraw some mile or so to the north. The inscription refers to one of the early kings of Gwynedd - Cadfan - who died about AD 625. Translated to English it reads "King Catamus (Cadfan in Welsh) wisest and most renowned of all kings lies here"
