Llangelynin Church and Holy Well.
http://www.walesdirectory.co.uk/llangel/llangelynin.htm
The site of the old church is high above the Conwy valley, in the shelter of Tal y Fan. Several footpaths converge here. For many years these would have been the main routes between the Conwy valley and the settlements over the hills in Penmaenmawr and west toward Caernarfon and Anglesey. Today you will find walkers enjoying the easy terrain provided by the rolling hills en route to sites such as Aber Falls.


Maen y Bardd (Stone of the Bard)
http://www.walesdirectory.co.uk/his/bury/bardd.htm
Maen y Bardd is a Neolithic Burial Chamber in a beautiful location high above the Conwy Valley.


Hendre Waelod
http://www.walesdirectory.co.uk/his/bury/waelod.htm
Hendre Waelod is the only one of the Conwy valley portal dolmens with the traditional high portal stones-in this case, originally 3m high and probably covered by a separate lintel, now lost. The chamber behind is large but rather low, covered by an enormous capstone which has slipped to the north. Access from the portal is blocked but it is possible to squeeze inside from the other elevation.


The Church of Llanaber and St. Bodfan
http://www.walesdirectory.co.uk/his/ch/bodfan.htm
St Bodfan\'s Church is the finest 13th-century church in Gwynedd. It was built by Hywel ap Gruffudd ap Cynan, a great grandson of Owain Gwynedd who became overlord of this part of Meirionnydd in 1202 but was dead by 1216. The church houses the Llanaber stones dating from the late 5th-early 6th century AD.

The Ancient Church of Llandrillo yn Rhos, Conwy, North Wales. A short history with pictures.


Dyffryn Ardudwy
http://www.walesdirectory.co.uk/his/bury/dyffryn.htm
This site excavated in 1960 was one of the first sites where multi period building was recognised, and has become central to the understanding of the portal dolmen group in this country and in Ireland. Portal dolmens form the most common type of tomb in this region. They stood at the centre of the farmed land,a focus for the community like a parish church, and many of them are striking and daring examples of architecture and engineering.


Royal Commission on the Ancient & Historical Monuments of Wales
http://www.rcahmw.org.uk
The Royal Commission is the investigating body and national archive for the historic environment of Wales. It has the lead role in ensuring that Wales\' archaeological, built and maritime heritage is authoritatively recorded and understood, and seeks to promote appreciation of this heritage nationally and internationally.


Bwlch y Ddeufaen
http://www.walesdirectory.co.uk/his/bury/bwlch.htm
The pass, Bwlch y Ddeufaen, is marked by two very fine standing stones. There are two smaller uprights close to the northern stone, and a series of small stones emerging from the peat a short distance east of the southern stone.
