St Mary Magdalene Church is located in the small village of Cerrigydrudion, Conwy County, North Wales. The church is set in the heart of the village looking toward the village square iSt Mary Magdalen Church Cerrigydrudionn one direction and the glorious open countryside in the other.

St Mary Magdalene is believed to have been founded as early as AD 440, and was mentioned in the Norwich Taxation of 1254. It was repaired and enlarged in 1503, and, as with many Welsh churches, restored by the Victorians. Some of the surviving masonry may be of 16th Century and a foundation course from an earlier, possibly medieval structure, is apparent. There is a re-used 14th Century window and inside the roof is late medieval, perhaps of 1503. There is a chest of 1730, a few wall memorials and a benefaction board of 1737.
