History[edit | edit source]

ABER, or ABER-GWYNGREGYN, a parish, in the union of Bangor and Beaumaris, hundred of Llêchwedd Uchâv, county of Carnarvon, North Wales, 6 miles (e. n. e.) from Bangor. This was anciently a residence of the native princes of North Wales. The church, dedicated to St. Bodvan, is a spacious structure with a good square tower, having been greatly improved in 1811: the interior, which is neatly fitted up, consists of a nave and chancel of equal length, the latter lighted with a series of low windows, differing in their style, and probably inserted at various times. There are places of worship for dissenters.[1]

In 1870: ABER, a village and a parish in Bangor district, Carnarvon. The village stands on the coast, at the mouth of the Gwyngregyn rivulet, 4¾ miles E of Bangor. It has a post office under Bangor, a station on the Chester and Holyhead railway, and a comfortable inn. It is a charming place, and is much frequented by tourists. The views all round, and in the neighborhood, over sea and land, are rich and varied; and some of them are panora mic and extensive. The Lavan sands extend in front, dry for 4 miles at low water; and may be crossed on foot, with a guide, to the ferry of Beaumaris. ...
