Mwnt



Wales - The best day of our holiday week, weatherwise, saw us visiting Mwnt, whose name might be unpronounceable to a Yorkshire woman but whose beauty we certainly appreciated. It's stunning! Cared for by the National Trust, this area of the Welsh coast, around Cardigan Bay, centres on a curious conical hill, Foel y Mwnt, that has at its base both a sweet little whitewashed church and an attractive, sheltered beach of golden sand. The 76m high hill is easy to climb and gives wonderful views up and down the coast (see top picture). Sadly, the Church of the Holy Cross was locked so we couldn't peep inside. The Grade 1 listed building dates back to the 14th century and is a medieval sailors' chapel of ease; that is, not the main church in a parish but one built for convenience for those who might not be able to get easily to the main parish church.
