Your Story: The Chapel of St Trillo on the Shore

St Trillo’s ministry spread inland from the shore. He may have been under the protection of Maelgwn Gwynedd and was one of the signatories to the grant made to St Kenitgern at the endowment of the See of Bangor. St Trillo’s cell may well have been made of ‘wattle and daub’ with a thatched roof. It appears to have been built to enclose a spring of fresh water. This spring was accorded Holy proprieties and was used for Baptisms throughout the locality. Over the years a stone building replaced the former structure.
