St Winefried's Pilgrimage 2017

Day 3: Malltraeth to Rhosneigr

This is a pleasant and short day's walk, along the Anglesey Coast Path for much of the day. We pass through the well-kept and extensive grounds of the Bodorgan Estate. It was in one of the lodge houses here that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stayed when resident on Anglesey. We pass the "church in the sea" but are unable to visit it because it will be high tide at that point and the church is ... in the sea!

Gathered for our eucharistic service in St Cadwaladr's church, Llangadwaladr. Some rain today, less than we feared. John Chenery

Nothing like a nice cuppa: this lady saw the pilgrims sitting on a wall eating their rolls, on a coldish dampish day, and brewed teas and coffees for all! Susie Duffy

We knew the high tide would stop us reaching the church in the sea but it also made us change our route on the fly earlier. John Chenery

It was quite a fraught day frontmarking, with constant wind and occasional light drizzle, and the high tide... John Chenery
