Abersoch, Congregational Church 1901

More about this scene


Caption for Abersoch, Congregational Church 1901: Abersoch was keen to advertise itself as 'the Welsh Riviera'. A horse-drawn conveyance is picking up passengers; it is a lovely sunny day, so perhaps they are off for a picnic. The church dates from 1875.
