The village is pleasantly situated in a fertile vale near the Clwydian mountains, and the neighbourhood abounds with pleasing and finely varied scenery. That portion of the parish called the township of Llanrhudd Uchav is comprised within the limits of the contributory borough of Ruthin. ... The church, dedicated to St. Meugan, is a small ancient edifice, forming a picturesque object in the vale. ... There is a place of worship for Calvinistic Methodists."
