    Hugh Griffith Grave

    Hugh Griffith Grave on Conwy audio tour Discovering Conwy: The Medieval Walled Town on a Waterfront

    Opposite the porch, to the left of the path are two slate slab graves on top of bricks. we are going to look at the one with a piece of slate inserted in the middle

    It's for the family of a ship's carpenter who was lost at sea - but came back years later when his name had to be cut out and replaced with an appropriate resurrection quote from the Bible. His name is Hugh Griffith. Look and see what a great age he reached in the end!

    Another grave not far away commemorates an unfortunate blacksmith who drowned on Christmas Day 1806 in a ferry disaster - we'll learn more about this later.

    Feel free to go inside the church if it's open. It is interesting and you'll be made very welcome. When you're ready, with your back to the church tower leave the churchyard through the black iron gates and on to the street.
