St Mael and St Sulien

Owain Glyndwr left his mark on this picturesque Welsh church, a place brimming with intrigue and history. It's said that the cross on the huge stone lintel above the door on the south side of the church was made by his dagger, thrown in a rage from pen y Pigyn, up on the wooded slope overlooking the church.

The church dates back to the late 15th Century, and while the interior was given a make-over in Victorian times, a huge 17th Century chest remains, and in a niche by the alter is a carved memorial to a 15th CEntury vicar.

The church stands in a yew filled graveyard, just back from the main street in the centre of Corwen.
