Note 1: The south wall has two windows with 14th century tracery. Some of the masonry in the nave may be even earlier, but the roodloft, staircase, windows, south doorway and porch, north chapel and west tower are 15th century. The short north aisle dates from the Victorian restoration.

Note 2: St Cadoc's Church, in the centre of the village, was founded in the 14th century, and is well worth a visit. In the Beaufort chapel the north window is a striking testimony to the first Lord Raglan, who died in the Crimea in 1855. He had been Wellington's military secretary and lost an arm at the battle of Waterloo. The Raglan overcoat, with its special sleeve, was named after the first Lord Raglan.
Note 3: "In the centre foreground [of the churchyard] arose the four steps and interesting base of the churchyard cross. Broached and decorated with quatrefoils, one of which has been recessed by a niche, used perhaps for relics, perhaps for gifts, it is a fine medieval survival.
