LLECHYLCHED (LLECH-YLCHED), a parish in the hundred of LLYVON, county of ANGLESEY, NORTH WALES, 7 miles (S.E. by E.) from Holyhead, containing 405 inhabitants. This parish, which is of very moderate extent, lies in the south-western part of the island ; and the church is situated far from any house, in a marshy valley watered by a stream which falls into the bay of Carnarvon. The surrounding sceneryis not distinguished by any peculiarity of feature, except that of a dreary and unprepossessing aspect. The road from London to Holyhead passes through the village, of which the inhabitants are chiefly employed in agriculture. The living is annexed to the rectory of Llanbeulan, in the archdeaconry of Anglesey, and diocese of Bangor. The church, dedicated to St. Ilched, is a small edifice. There are places of worship for Independents and Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists. A National school, for the gratuitous instruction of poor children of this and the adjoining parishes, was established in 1829: it is supported by subscription, and the present number of children is seventy-five. The poor are maintained by an average annual expenditure amounting to £ 176. 7. (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis, 1833)
