"A village in the valley of the Carfan brook, a feeder of the Thaw. It was the site of a famous Celtic monastry founded by St. Cadoc in the sixth century. The church has a transitional Norman arcade, and the remains of a fine screen. On a neighbouring hill is an ancient camp."

[Glamorganshire, 1911]
