Henllan Parish Church

Henllan is one of the ancient parishes of Denbighshire, originally comprising the townships of Banister Isaf, Banister Uchaf, Brynysgub, Erifiat, Gwenynog Llan, Lleweni Isaf, Lleweni Uchaf, Rhanfawr, Rhanhir (or Twysog), Taldrach, Tre'rparc, and Uwchcaerau (or Uwchcaeron).

On 21 July 1855, more than half of the parish went to the new parishes of Trefnant and Bylchau. At a later date, a further part of the parish went to the parish of Denbigh.

The church tower is separate from the main church building. It stands on a rock, and is said to be positioned such that its corners point North, South, East and West. The old church was demolished in 1806, and a new, larger, church was erected on the same site. The church was again repaired in 1844, and "restored" in 1878, being re-opened on 31 January 1879.
