Notes: The first church on the site was established in the 7th century. The oldest parts of the present structure date from the 14th century. In 1843 the cost of repairing the old church was deemed to be prohibitive and the building was demolished, leaving only part of the western end and the central arcade. It has been restored by the owners of the adjoining house, Plan Llanidan, and is apparently occasionally open to the public. The Topographical Dictionary of Wales in 1849 described 'a venerable yew tree within its precincts'.
