HISTORY

The church’s dedication to St Ffraid (otherwise known as St Bride or St Bridget), together with its location on the edge of the Cain valley, point to an early mediæval foundation.

The present church building would appear to have a 12th century core that was extended in the 14th century. The South Porch and the bell turret were added in the 17th century and a North transept in the 18th century. The exact sequence of the development of the church is, however, unclear.
