The dry summer of 2006 produced a surprise for an aerial archaeologist while flying over a field near Llwydfaen in the Conwy valley. There appeared to be the characteristic outline of a small medieval church in a place where no church is ever known to have existed. The church may have been established around 1088 AD during attempts by Hugh of Avranches, earl of Chester, and his cousin Robert of Rhuddlan, to extend Norman control into Gwynedd; the pristine outline of it's buried foundations suggests that the church may never have been completed beyond its footings.|Latest news for the "Lost Church" | Archaeological excavations took place on the site in 2013, and following the finding of a number of Roman artefacts, opinion has shifted to the site being a Roman Temple.
