Site Notes

Westwood/1858, 405--406, gives the best description of the site and its locale - 'Gwytherin is a small secluded village, in a valley lying among hills about six or seven miles to the south-east of Llanwrst, in Denbighshire. After ascending the thickly wooded eastern side of the vale of Llanwrst, ...a tract of high, bleak and very barren-looking peaty land, destitute of trees, cultivation and inclosures, is reached, beyond which a little valley is arrived at, nearly at the head of which the village in question is situated.

In the churchyard, at the north side of the church there is a row of four standing stones, one of which is inscribed in Roman letters.
