Title: The Displacement of Llanllechid Church


There was a tradition extant in the parish of Llanllechid, near Bangor, Gwynedd, that it was intended to build a church in a field called Cae’r Capel, not far from Plasuchaf Farm. However, it was found the next morning that the labours of the previous day had been destroyed, and that the materials had been transported in the night to the site of the present church.  The workmen carried them all back again, and resumed their work at Cae’r Capel, but it was all done in vain, for the next day they found their work undone, and all the materials in the place where they had found them when their work was first tampered with.  Seeing that it was useless fighting against a superior power such as an evil spirit of Fairies, they decided to construct the building on the spot indicated by the destroyers of their labours.
