Church History

Ordnance Survey reference SJ 158328.
"The church, dedicated to St. Germanus, is an ancient and spacious building, but entirely destitute of architectural character, and in a very dilapidated condition. About forty yards to the west of it, and within the cemetery, is a large oblong tumulus, which is said to be the sepulchre of St. Germanus."
[ A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis]

The church was rebuilt in 1846.

The Clwyd FHS website has a photograph of the church.
