“a great church.”
Review of St. Cybi Church

St. Cybi Church
Reviewed 14 November 2016

i have been here many times as i sing with the holyhead male voice choir and we perform the many times during the year. the church has a great history and there are ladies and gentleman who will explain everything to u, the church also has a royal british legion garden of rememberance which has been there for three or four years, i am lucky to be able to attend as i am a member of the rbl, this was the firsst one outside cardiffto be done. the church is well wortha visit.

originally Fort then Catholic then Angelican. Attended at one time by the knights of Templar and has the Uther Pendras crested banner hanging from ceiliing This banner has ever battle they ever fought in emroidered around it's edges. . Also has a Prince of Wales banner of Lewellyn the only knight who did not die by the sword. The entire courtyard is flat graves with whole familes beneath. you can see by the layout it was once the keep area surrounded by tall fort walls. Cistern fenced in on one corner.

No church should be viewed as a tourist venue as such but this was well worth visiting for its fascinating interior of various centuries although little remains of its earliest beginnings but it does contain fine artefacts and memorials.

I went here as I'd seen the Roman Fort signposted and I wasn't disappointed. It'd be lovely to see more touristy things here but just seeing it is lovely.
The old schoolhouse and the church aren't open unfortunately but there is plenty of things to see if your interests lie with history at all.

St Cybi's Church is a beacon of Welsh history and spirituality with its Celtic story. Built in the 1600s the church's stained glass windows are of particular note. There is a memorial within the church, dedicated to those fighting in WWI. A visitor's book bears witness to the diversity of visitors who come into the church. The original school built in the 1600s shares the site. An iconic centre in Holyhead the church has informative story boards providing the story of the original ministers in the area. A very interesting site.
