Late fifteenth-century church, the nave of about 1500, with further additions in the early sixteenth century. Clynnog Fawr was established by Beuno, and his cult was established there, although nothing of the earlier medieval buildings survive. Various restorations in 1848-56 and during the first half of the twentieth century, some of which was under the supervision of Harold Hughes.
