About St Beuno's Church

A beautiful little church dedicated to the 7th century Welsh saint, Beuno. The church can only seat about 30 people at any one time, and even that’s a tight squeeze! The original name was Kitnor – meaning ‘hillslope frequented by kites’. The church boasts a Saxon font and carved head that is part-cat, part-man on the north window.
