Denbighshire Parishes

Llanychan is village and ecclesiastical parish in Denbighshire, Wales. It is the smallest parish in the diocese of St. Asaph.

"LLANYCHAN (LLAN-HYCHAN),a parish in the hundred of Ruthin, county of Denbigh, 3 miles (N.N.W.) from Ruthin, containing 115 inhabitants. This parish, which derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Hychan, who flourished in the fifth century, is pleasantly situated nearly in the centre of the fertile and picturesque Vale of Clwyd. It is only of inconsiderable extent, but in the beauty of its situation, and the richness and variety of the surrounding scenery, it is not inferior to any spot of the same extent in this part of the principality. The lands are all enclosed and in a high state of cultivation, and the soil is tolerably fertile. ... There is a place of worship for Calvinistic Methodists." (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis)
