Nantglyn

Nantglyn was a stopping point for pilgrims on their way to Bardsey Island during medieval times, and the childhood home of David Samwell, the poet and surgeon who accompanied Captain James Cook on his ship ‘Discovery’. He even witnessed Captain Cook being murdered by hostile natives in Hawaii in 1779. Nantglyn also claims to have experienced Britain’s deepest snow fall at over 8ft!

For visitors, St James Church is a must. Tradition has it that John Wesley preached in the open air during the 18th century from the famous “pulpit in a tree”. This is the only one of its kind in North Wales and is found in the yew tree in the churchyard.
