History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: 15th century nave roof timbers
One survivor of the restoration is a medieval window reset in the vestry wall. Parts of the nave and chancel also survive from the medieval building, and the timber roof in the nave is probably 15th century. The glass is 19th century, as are the pulpit and pews.
The most famous cleric to serve St Cadwaladr's church was Rev. Robert Williams (1810–1881), who wrote the Lexicon Cornu-Britannicum, the first example of a Cornish-English dictionary.
Don't confuse this church of St Cadwaladr with the church of the same name on Anglesey!
