Llanbedrog Church is a church nestled into a small rolling hill a minutes walk from the beach. The Church was first mentioned in the 'Norwich Taxatio' of 1254 and the present nave foundations are 13th century. The chancel was added in the early part of the 16th century. | The present building is largely the result of repairs and restoration carried out during the 19th and 20th century, with significant restorations in 1865, 1895 and 1995. It was then that the tower was added. | The rood screen, font and west window are however pre-reformation. | The church suffered under Cromwell’s troops, and the Church was used as a stable for horses. However the Rood Screen, (the date of which is uncertain possibly 14th century) was removed before the troops arrived and was buried on the beach. The then East Window was destroyed. Pieces of it were put in an oak box and were discovered buried beneath the floor when a new door was fitted in 1895. The original bits were put together (Mediaeval glass) with a Victorian Glass surround to form the West Window. | During most of the time the Church is open and supervised by an active ministry of welcome in the summer, although it was closed on a Thursday when I visited in June 2011.
