Llanina Beach - Ceredigion

St Ina's Church, Llanina

St Ina was a King of Wessex in the 7th/8th centuries. He abdicated and made a pilgrimage to Rome and was later canonised. The story goes that he was shipwrecked while sailing in the Irish sea and rescued and looked after by the local community. Out of gratitude he built the first church near here. That church was lost to coastal erosion and this is at least the third, possibly the seventh on or near the site.
