Dolwyddelan Church

Rachel and I have been working on our designs for the Conwy windows.

We are now in Conwy for a site visit. We will be measuring and surveying the windows and doing some in depth research and designing work over the weekend. Today we visited the wonderful Church of  St Gwyddelan in Dolwyddelan on the way north. It is a fantastic 15th Century church that contains a fragment window made with glass that was excavated from the site of the 12th Century Church on Bryn y Bedd. The glass dates from the early medieval period. The church also houses some lovely very early wood carvings including a rare ‘salamander’, a two-headed dragon with a knot in its tail.
