You may be mistaken for thinking that you will find a lot of honey here in Llanerchymedd, as 'medd' translates from Welsh as 'mead'. Although you may find honey and mead in the little shops on the main street, there is a lot more to Llanerchymedd.
Set in the heart of Anglesey in North Wales, this little village is merely 15 miles from Holyhead and sits close to the striking reservoir of Lake Alaw. Visits should definitely be made to this reservoir where you can enjoy a delicious picnic amongst the prestigious views across the lake and beyond. Away from the lake, there are plenty more sights to see, mostly historical: the town incorporates the impressive St Mary's church with a beautiful and peaceful graveyard, which you can stroll around at your desire. Llanerchymedd has possibly made its name from speculation that the Virgin Mary was buried right here in the town itself, although this is hard to believe as Mary was from Palestine and it is unlikely that she would have settled in Anglesey for the last few years of her life! ....
