Notes

The remains of the late medieval church are 184 m from the eastern boundary of the parish, formed here by the River Nant. Parts of the walls remain. Immediately to the north of it is the modern parish church (1829). A charter of the mid-fourteenth century attests an earlier medieval building on the site, and medieval carved stones survive built into the wall of the modern church (NMRS).
