History

Port Church was built as a church and attached house by the Vaynol Estate c1863 as a replacement for the Seamans' Mission. It was built to a similar design and in a similar period as the church in Bethel. The church and grounds were transferred to Llanfair-is-gaer Parochial Church Council in 1950 and subsequently sold. The church was later converted to a separate dwelling.
