Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog St Garmon


The Parish

The parish of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog lies in the southern portion of Denbighshire, indeed it forms part of the border with neighbouring Merioneth. Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog is a mountain settlement about 9 miles west of the Shropshire market town of Oswestry. Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog sits at the end of the B4500 road that runs into the Berwyn Mountains from Chirk. The village is tightly crammed into the valley of the Afon Ceiriog with most of the settlement on either bank and close to the crossing point. This is an upland community and life would have revolved around the annual cycle of the sheep farming which dominates the area and makes use of the sparse resources of the mountains. The Afon Ceiriog is flowing eastwards to meet the Dee to the east of Chirk from where it heads to the Irish Sea through Chester. Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog is sited at 270 metres above sea level but land rises steeply to the west to reach local heights at Moel Sych (827 metres) on the Berwyns. As an upland parish Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog was large, covering over 10,000 acres (much of which was best described as rough moorland) it supported a population of just over 300 parishioners. In common with most of Wales there is no mention of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog in Domesday Book which did not cover this area.

The Church

St Garmon's church sits to the southeast of the main part of the village on the northern side of the mountain road which leads to Rhydycroesau. The church is not an ancient edifice having been built in the mid 19th century. Pevsner describes it as a "simple box" in the Perpendicular style predominant in the 15th century. The building is clearly of little architectural interest as he dismisses its description in a handful of lines. The church sits behind a low stone wall augmented by some very large trees, a pair of metal gates at the eastern end (where there is a small pull-in) grants access to the churchyard. Once inside there are few restrictions to photography.
