In the first of a new series, Heledd Cynwal, Iestyn Jones and Siôn Tomos Owen visit Bardsey Island seeking out some of the island’s lesser known stories. For such a small patch of land it’s surprising how many tales there are to tell from the Monks to the Pirates to the island’s Kings. As well as the farmers, fishermen and boatmen we catch up with the carpenter who is ensuring the past survives and we catch up with the 20,000 Manx Shearwaters who visit the island annually.
