It was the same today as yesterday: rain in the day, clearing in the evening. I walked down the other side of the estuary, where it is all samphire and marshland and one sees the same view, only more pastoral:-
We walked along the Malltreath Cob, completed in 1812 as part of a project to reclaim the Malltreath Marsh from the tide, straightening the River Cefni as a canal all the way to Llangefni. This was where Charles Tunnicliffe RA lived in a house called Shorelands, moving there from Manchester in 1947, with its fine views of remote marshes and seabirds:-
We went in search of Llaniestyn Church, a tiny little grey church in nearly open countryside west of Llanddona. We were half helped in finding it by a mysterious nearby signpost wrapped in a woolly blanket:-
Inside the church, I admired the early font:-
The elderly collecting box:-
And the carved description of annual bequests:-
But I managed to miss the carved relief of St. Iestyn, which I now discover is the main point of going there.
