Celebrating the cultural heritage of the most northerly village in Wales

Despite its rural setting, Cemaes has a rich industrial past to discover.


Wygyr Wollen Mill began weaving brethyn (Welsh home-spun blankets) in 1698.



Industrial Heritage

Brick manufacturing at the intriguing Porth Wen brickworks during the 19th century.

Maritime Heritage

The sea has influenced many Cemaes lives. From its beginnings as an ancient fishing village renowned for its salt herring to a thriving port in the nineteenth century.


 

Generations of fishermen,
lifeboat men, seamen,
shipbuilders, and merchants
have shaped our rich
maritime heritage.

Many painters have captured their reflections of Cemaes through the centuries leaving an unique visual legacy.  


Cemaes Heritage Centre has an
art collection that portrays
village life, seascapes and
landscapes through the centuries.
