Friends of Friendless Churches

I was pleased to read this account of the origins of The Friends of Friendless Churches, which I did not know and am not surprised that it was founded by a Welsh MP because its work is particularly valuable in North Wales, including many of the churches I most admire:- St. Mary, Tal-y-Llyn, remote along a deserted road east of Aberffraw; St. Baglan, Llanfaglan, again exceptionally remote, on the coast west of Caernarvon; and the astonishing St. Mark’s, Brithdir, which I finally managed to locate last summer, on a hillside surrounded by rhodendendra near Dolgellau. Friends of Friendless Churches keeps them open as places to admire without song and dance – the best sort of charity.
