We went out to Penmon Priory, a magical spot, founded by St. Cynlas, who gave it to his brother St. Seiriol in the sixth century, refounded by the Augustinians in the twelfth century:-
Good and robust Norman carving, as the Shell Guide says, on the tower arches:-
And a nicely carved corbel:-
Next door, the Prior’s House, thought to have been rebuilt in the early sixteenth century:-
There is a little path close the the church which leads past a monastic fish pond full of reeds:-
It leads to St. Seiriol’s Well:-
A calmer or more meditative spot is hard to imagine.
