Now you can phone hymn

The chip shop on Beach Road, Bangor, is the birthplace of a noted composer of rousing Welsh hymns ...
which were once widely sung in chapels and are still performed in concerts and services. His bardic name was Isalaw. A plaque above the door marks the connection, but it's a bit cryptic. Now you can scan a QR barcode in one of the windows to read his story on your mobile phone and - through the kindness of Sain Records - listen to a clip of one of his hymns as you stand there.
