The original church was founded here by St Edwen in 640AD. The new church was built in 1856, and designed by Henry Kennedy using some of the original stone.
The church is grade II listed. The tower and spire can be seen from a wide area. Inside are numerous memorials from the 17th and 18th centuries. There is a pair of dog tongs from the 19th century. The church has been attended by some of the Marquesses of Anglesey who are buried in the churchyard. Llanedwen is regularly lit by candlelight and the 1662 Prayer Book is still in use for Sunday services.
