St Cybi’s Restoration

During 2013, with the assistance of grant funding from Heritage Lottery Fund, Cadw and the Isle of Anglesey County Council, restoration work costing £75,000 was carried out to St Cybi’s Church.

This included the removal of unsightly vegetation from the tower and the installation of new window guards on all the windows which has considerably improved the aesthetic look of the building.

During the restoration work evidence of a previous roof line over the Nave was discovered.  This shows that the earlier roof was pitched with a considerable slope, to assist with a quick run off of rainwater.  Evidence of an opening high up on the west wall of the Nave was also discovered.  Gwynedd Archaeological Trust have carried out an investigation and are preparing a report.  One possibility is that the filled in opening was once the entrance to a Minstrels Gallery.
