Llandudno lies between two
carboniferous headlands, the
Great Orme and the Little Orme,
with the Irish Sea on
one side and the estuary of the River Conwy on the other.
The beautiful Church
of 'Our Lady Star of the Sea' (in the Catholic diocese of Wrexham)
was built in 1893 to
serve the growing Catholic population in the area and
to minister to the
many visitors to Llandudno. Click

The writer, a Roman Catholic, loves
his adopted parish and
its fine Gothic revival Church but also the ancient church of St.
Tudno. The parish of Llandudno was an island in the ecclesiastical
sense and virtually so in the geographical sense until the land
reclamation of the early 19th century.
