St Saeran’s Church now stands on the site where a “clas” or religious community was founded in the 6th century. This 13th century double-naved church, once the mother church of southern Dyffryn Clwyd, is full of interest to visitors, with its Tudor porch, two ancient oak doors pair of hammer-beam roofs, unusual fluted timber columns, carved stone memorials and timber panels and two chandeliers. Its most striking feature is the 15th century wall painting of St Christopher carrying the infant Christ over a river, a remarkable survival of medieval imagery. The large yew tree in a field near the churchyard is said to mark the centre of the Vale of Clwyd. Grade 1 Listed Building
