St Dyfnog

This exceptionally fine late medieval parish church was probably built with money raised from pilgrims visiting St Dyfnog's holy well.

About this church

It's believed that he lived here in the 6th century and did penance at the well.

The oldest part of the church still standing is the 13th century tower.

The Jesse window is a magnificent feature, a representation of the family tree of Jesus. It was completed in 1533, although the artist is unknown.
