"NANNERCH, a parish partly in the Caerwys division of the hundred of Rhuddlan, county of Flint, and partly in the hundred of Ruthin, county of Denbigh, 5 miles ( W.) from Holywell, containing 384 inhabitants. ... The church, dedicated to St Mary, is a neat plain structure. ... At Cwm, near the village, there is a place of worship for Calvinistic Methodists, erected in 1830. ... Near the boundary of the parish is Moel Arthur, a very extensive British encampment, occupying the summit of a lofty eminence; and near it are the remains of Pen y Cloddiau, the most extensive Britihs forrtification in this part of the principality: they are both situated on the range of the Clwydian mountians, within the limits of the parish." (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis)
