St Digain's church lies in a remote part of Conwy County. The churchyard is renowned as the home of the oldest Yew tree in Wales, the churchyard also contains ancient standing stones and pillars. Without doubt the church is an early medieval foundation though the church itself as seen today is not thought to be earlier than the 13thCentury. It may have been extended in the late medieval period, acquiring its unusual and distinctive cruciform shape at that time (the more usual form in this part of north Wales is a single nave or double nave). The church contains little of pre-19th Century architectural interest apart from a roof which is probably late medieval and an original south doorway, all off the windows having been replaced or renewed. The churchyard may once have described an oval shape but its edges have been shaved back and there is a large extension to the east.
