Built on the site of the 7th century cell of St Marcella, the church is a classic example of the 'Vale of Clwyd' twin-naved style and is largely the result of a late perpendicular remodelling of around 1500.

Exceptionally fine and well preserved, it is one of the most important churches in North Wales and contains some notable monuments.

Buried inside are the map maker Humphrey Llwyd, members of the powerful Salusbury family and the heart of Richard Clough, the Denbigh-born merchant. Outside is the grave of Twm o'r Nant, dramatist and poet of Denbigh.

See for further details.
