Saint Iestyn Ascetic

Reposed 7 century Remembered October 10

St Iestyn was a royal who became a hermit and was probably a disciple of St Cybi. He founded a church at Llaniestyn in Anglesey and another of the same name in Gwynedd.

There is a 14 century effigy stone which may have been part of his shrine.
