Church of St Tydecho, Llanymawddwy, Gwynedd
east wall of the chancel

The design is attributed to R.T. Bayne by William Waters.

A relatively early date for the depiction of Welsh saints, the choice perhaps influenced by the interests of the scholar and antiquarian Revd John Williams, who was rector at St Tydecho's in the mid-nineteenth century.
