The walk under the Menai Suspension Bridge and along the Belgian Promenade to the church is beautiful. The church is very small and was established in 630 AD. Definitely worth the walk to see the strength of the tides of the Swellies.

An island church and cemetery on an island in the Menai Strait and reached by a causeway. A magical place - the church is small and dates from 650AD. War memorial - a Celtic cross - on summit of island - the designer lies nearby.
