Penmaenmawr Museum's 'Churches, Chapels and Champions' walk took place in glorious sunshine yesterday. We visited St Seiriol's Church, the former Pen y Cae Methodist Chapel (now empty Catholic Church), Noddfa (formerly called Tan y Foel), Trwyn y Wylfa (looks like a chapel but isn't), Horeb Chapel and St Gwynin's Church. We also learned about Murray Gladstone (and his possibly mysterious death on Pen beach), Owen Owen, William Jones of Trwyn y Wylfa, Andrew George Kurtz (who donated the land on which the Dingle stands to the people of Pen) and many more besides.
