Ceirchiog Holy Rood


The Parish

The parish of Ceirchiog is located in western Anglesey, it is on the route of the A5 road which connects London to the port of Holyhead and which crosses Anglesey in the process. The parish was an extremely lowly populated one and there is no village to merit the name merely a scatter of farms and cottages. Much of the area of the parish now lies under the modern A5 expressway which replaces the old A5. The parish is about 8 miles southeast of Holyhead and includes the modern village of Bryngwran. This is a low lying area, merely 20 metres above sea level, drained by small streams heading southwestwards to the Afon Crigyll which reaches the sea near Rhosneigr. The land is almost totally devoted to pasture with sheep predominating. ceirchiog is a relatively small parish at just over 600 acres and it supported a small population of just over 150 souls. In common with most of Wales there is no mention in Domesday Book.

The Church

Holy Rood church is sadly no more, the site still exists but the church has gone leaving only the boundary walls and a few stones. The church was abandoned in 1843 and it did not take long for the weather and stone reuse to reduce the building to a few scattered ruins.
