This is the smallest chapel in Britain and stands on the
foreshore (now protected by extended promenade and sea wall) at
Llandrillo yn Rhos (Rhos-on-Sea). Its a simple stone and mortar
structure with integral walls and roof and has a heavy wooden
door. It was heavily restored in its present form with new external
walls and roof about 120 years ago.
Its altar stands over a natural spring of clear water
dedicated to St Trillo and St Elidan and was first established by Saint
Trillo early in the sixth century
AD. The chapel has seats for six people and is used for an Anglican
Eucharist every Wednesday. The spring water is traditionally used for
baptisms in that parish which has two other Anglican Churches.
Trillo is believed to have been a contemporary of Saint Deiniol of
Bangor (and therefore of Saint David and Saint Dubricius) and it is
said that he took part in the foundation c546 of the diocese of
Bangor under the patronage of Maelgwn, High Prince of
Gwynedd, whose Royal Castle was at Deganwy.
