Ysbyty Ifan

 

The Great War years were dark ones for every parish in Wales, and Ysbyty Ifan was no different.
The village’s name derives from the hospital established there by Ifan ap Rhys in 1190 to assist travellers and pilgrims on their way to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island). The village was an important centre for centuries, as the most direct route from north-east Wales (and beyond) ran through it, over the Migneint moors, and down towards the Llŷn Peninsula.
The area lost 8 of its brightest young characters during the war.
