Saints and Stones: St. Caffo's Church

St. Caffo's Church is located in the village of Llangaffo on the Isle of Anglesey. The church is dedicated to St. Caffo, a friend of St. Cybi, and a member of the 6th Century circle of saints who evangelised North Wales.

The church is most well known for its remarkable collection of inscribed and decorated stones, dating from the 7th to 12th Centuries. This collection reflects the former historical importance of the site, probably a monastery.

There are five stones outside the church door, a nice wheel-cross head in the chancel, and an inscribed stone in the vestry. There are numerous other decorated stones in the church yard (e.g., the Preaching Cross) and outside of the churchyard wall.
