HISTORY

St Mary’s church was built to provide a place of worship for those parishioners living in a part of the parish over 3 miles from the parish church. The foundation stone was laid in 1891 by Lady Wynn and opened in 1892. It is dedicated as a memorial to Bishop William Morgan who was vicar of the parish when he published his translation of the Bible into Welsh in 1588. The church consists of a single cell chancel and nave with a single aisle and a bell turret. A porch with two vestries was added in 1925. The building is situated beside the Llanrhaeadr to Llanfyllin road, and there are magnificent views across the Tanat valley towards Llanrhaeadr and the Berwyn mountains beyond.
