St Cybi's Church overlooks the harbour in Holyhead, Anglesey. The original church was founded in the 6th Century by the Cornish Saint Cybi and the church has suffered a violent history, being sacked by the Vikings in the 10th Century and by the English during the Glyndwr Rebellion in the 15th Century. Another assault on the church took place in the 17th Century when Cromwell's soldiers systematically destroyed the interior windows, font, tombs and statues. The present day church is perpendicular in style with beautiful stone carvings below the front parapet walls. Sadly the church was ‘damaged’ again in the 19th century when it was heavily restored by the architect Gilbert Scott.
