Crist y Brenin Church, Malltraeth
(Christ the King Church.)

This tiny rectangular-shaped Church with an undivided nave and chancel, was constructed in 1874, for the dual purpose of a church infant school and mission church, known as St Elizabeth's. The school was closed in 1913 when the bulding became a church only.
Extensive works were carried out in 1959, when it was re-dedicated as Crist y Brenin.
