St David's Church

One of the earliest descriptions of the area comes from a Merioneth survey in the year 1565. 'Abermowe, beinge likewise a haven havinge no habitacion, But only foure howses, whereof there are owners Res ap Res, Haryy ap Eden, Thomas ap Edward, and John ap Howell Goche.'

The church in this picture is 'St Davids', one of the oldest in town. It is located near the harbour.
