"A parish in the Union and hundred of Ruthin, county of Denbigh; 2 miles (S by W) from Ruthin, containing 234 inhabitants. ..... The land, the extent of which is about 1400 acres, consists chiefly of arable, pasture, and woodland, the portion under tillage being by far the largest, and in a state of high cultivation, producing excellent wheat, barley, oats, potatoes and turnips. The scenery is particularly picturesque and beautiful; the surface is boldly undulated, and ornamented in various parts with oak, ash, and poplar trees, and enlivened with several streams, the principal of which is the Clwyd, traversing the eastern boundary. ..... The village is beautifully situated in a sequestered vale abounding with pleasing scenery."
