PeriodPost Medieval

The tiny, single storey chapel known as St Trillo's Cell, measures 15ft by 9ft, and was probably built by the monks of Aberconwy Abbey.  The present building is not much earlier than the start of the sixteenth century, though the chapel may well be built upon a much older foundation. Wall paintings of “sacred subjects” recorded in the building by Keyser are now gone. The chapel was restored and re-consecrated by Bishop Havard in 1935.
