The story behind this image

One of the most enigmatic places on the North Wales coast, this is the churchyard of St Tysilio, situated on its own island on the Anglesey side of the Menai Straits, separating the Isle of Anglesey from the mainland Wales.

While quietly walking around the church's graveyard I came across this old monument stone, now overgrown and being slowly absorbed by the enroaching vegetation.

A little piece of welsh history in a quiet corner, easily overlooked.
