St. Asaph Cathedral (St. Asaph)

The Cathedral of St. Asaph is the cathedral serving the little town of St. Asaph in North Wales.

It is one of the oldest sees in Britian, having been founded about 560, when the original church was built by St. Kentigern, who was succeeded by St. Asaph.

An early cathedral was burned down in 1282, and its successor was destroyed by Owain Glyndwr in 1402.

There was extensive restoration during the late 15th century, although more damage was caused in 1714, when part of the tower blew down in a gale.

St. Asaph is the smallest cathedral in Britain.

William Morgan, who translated the Bible into Welsh, was the Bishop in the 17th century.
