UK st Peulans Anglesey

�A small disused church on Anglesey
The oldest part of the current building is the 12th century nave. The chancel and the side chapel were added in the 15th century. The entrance to the church is now via the chapel, but
once was through a doorway at the end of the nave, now blocked up.

One unusual feature in the contents of the building is a large rectangular baptismal font. It has different styles of carving on each side, include arcade-like carvings on one and a celtic cross at the end. The carvings appear to be 12th century Norman in origin and it has been suggested that it originally was an alter with space inside to hold relics.

Font in St. Peulan's

The church contains a number of memorials on the wall, and one stall in the chancel bears a carving declaring it to be "The Seate of William Bold of Treyrddol Esquire, 1664". The back wall of the nave displays decoratively-painted wood boards with the Lord's Prayer, the 12 commandments, and the Creed in Welsh

Owned by friends of friendless churches but still disused.

The explore

Having been bumbling along on the way to visit a friend's farm I noticed a church seemingly in the middle of nowhere seemingly in the middle of a field.�� Thinking it looked interesting I abandoned the car in the nearest layby and went back for a nosey.

A quick hop over a rather precariously fastened gate held up only by the staple of British farming - baler twine and you're on the churches raised causeway.

It's a nice peaceful little place.

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
