photoblog image St Dogmaels Abbey

St Dogmaels Abbey

was founded in the twelfth century on a site occupied by a pre-Norman monastery. Parts of the church and cloister are 12th century, however, the west and north walls of the nave are 13th century and the north doorway 14th-century ornamentation. The north transept is Tudor. The footings of the chapter house can be seen to the west of the cloister, with the adjacent monk's infirmary standing almost to roof level. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the church continued to be used for a time by the parish, and a rectory was built into the southwest corner of the cloister.

A Sagranus Stone in the church of St Thomas the Apostle bears an inscription in the ancient Ogham Script. The Church is next to the Abbey.

The Abbey seems more attractive than its neighbouring church, Bill.
Bill Phillips: The church is actually rather pleasing Ray
fine shot, Bill. i like the craggy stone work in the foreground along with the cloudy skies.
Bill Phillips: Those are remains of the old abbey walls Ayush

This is an interesting place full of history. I think we are in Wales. Sorry, I should google.
Bill Phillips: We are indeed Philine in Ceredigeon which is the area of Cardigan Bay

Interesting but the place name Dogmaels, which for all I know translates as "beautiful jewelled place with heavenly views" sounds perhaps a bit too canine for comfort
Bill Phillips: Llandudoch is the Welsh name which does little to clarify the situation

Interesting against the heavy skie
Bill Phillips: The rain kept off for once and the sun came out again'!
This is very nicely composed shot.
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Mary
What an interesting history this place has, not somewhere I was aware of, I see it is in Pembrokeshire, a lovely part of Wales.
Your pov is perfect with that moody sky.
A lovely old church Bill, going back a long way. Seems to be plenty of vacancies in the graveyard
A romantic looking setting, Bill
I love these places.... nice shot, Bill!
