From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Llanengan (Welsh for “St. Einion’s”) is a small village and community 1.2 mi (1.9 km) around Abersoch in Gwynedd in north-west Wales. It has a population of 2,024 at the 2001 census, reducing to 1,989 at the 2011 Census.

The parish church, which is dedicated to Saint Einion Frenin, was originally established in the late 5th or early 6th century and is one of the oldest churches on the Llŷn Peninsula. In 1537, with the passing of the Dissolution of the Lesser Monasteries Act, St Mary’s Abbey on Bardsey Island was dissolved and its monastic buildings demolished on the orders of Henry VIII. However, its choir stalls, two Rood screen and bells were saved and relocated to Llanengan Church as it had just been rebuilt in the early 1530s
