This parish, which derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Cynin, or from its situation on the river Cynin, by which it is bounded on the eastern side, contains a considerable tract of land, and with the exception of a very small portion, is inclosed and in a good state of cultivation. The church has no architectural claim to particular description. There is a place of worship for Wesleyan Methodists.
