ST. AEDDAN'S CHURCH

The OGRE

The Church

The small church of ancient foundation preserves almost intact its beautiful 15th century rood-loft and screen, which though unusually small is an elegant example of Welsh craftmanship. The round font is Norman enriched with cable moulding, and the registers date from 1734. A chapelry was founded here by Aeddan in the 13th century.
