History[edit | edit source]

"LLANSANNAN (LLAN-SANNAN), A parish in the Higher division of the hundred of Isaled, county of Denbigh; 8 miles (W.) from Denbigh, containing 1383 inhabitants. This place derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Sannan, the intimate friend and companion of the father of St. Winifred, who lived here in religions seclusion, and was buried near the remains of the latter at Gwytherin. The village is pleasantly situated at the head of the river Aled, which rises in Llyn Aled at no great distance, and in its course through the vale forms some interesting and picturesque cascades. The parish comprises a very considerable tract of arable and pasture land, of which by far the greater portion is enclosed; the soil, though various, is tolerably fertile. The surrounding scenery is almost totally devoid of natural beauty, and the country adjacent presents little more than an uninviting prospect of dreary wastes and mountains beyond. .... There are places of worship for Baptists and Calvinistic Methodists." (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis)
