Village

Details

The village of Llandanwg is situated to the west of the A496 coastal road between Llanbedr and Harlech, close to the village of Llanfair and about two miles south of Harlech. Originally it was a small collection of farms to the north of the river Artro, close to where it enters the sea. Later developments expanded the size of the village. The village has a railway station where trains on the Cambrian Coast Line stop on request.

The parish church of Saint Tanwg at Llandanwg is situated just behind the beach in the sand dunes just 20 metres (66 ft) above the high tide mark. The church is medieval, probably dating from the 13th century, however there are three fifth to sixth century inscribed stones and two stones with inscribed crosses inside the building which indicates much earlier activity, and it has probably been a place of worship since the early 5th century. Much of the churchyard is buried in sand. The church is a Grade II Listed building.
