at that time being two or three feet above the ground. A spot near the present plantation of Cefn Mawr had at the same time been pointed out as a sanctuary for criminals charged with lesser offences, who were free from arrest so long as they remained within its limits.

This parish abounds with springs of excellent water, one of which called Ffynnon Sarah is in great repute for its efficacy in the cure of cancers.

Those dreadful diseases, stone and gravel, are totally unknown to those inhabitants who are natives, and some who have removed hither from other situations have been completely cured.2

The parish of Llanelidan contains the townships of Llanelidan, Nantclwyd, Bryncyme, Trewyr, Bodlowydd, and Garth Neuadd. Piers Roberts in his Diary (Tyn y Rhyl MS.) has a note that “On the road from Ruthin to Corwen are Erw'r Benglog and Rhyd y Crogwr, in the township of Llanelidan. A bishop of Bangor gave the township to one Iorwerth ab Cadwgan free, but the tenants to be vassals; and they disobeying, he beheaded one on the plough-bear in Erw'r Benglog, and hanged another in Rhyd y Crogwr, whilst a third fled for sanctuary”. A deed in the Rhûg MS. at Peniarth records the purchase of Banhadlawn Undiawn by the monks of Ystrad-Marchell from the sons of Iorwerth ab Cadwgan and his coheredes in Llanelidan. The parish of Llanelidan contains 5109 acres.

Some few years ago there was a large number of Roman coins and some few rings found accidentally in a dingle near this place. In the parish of Llanfair Dyffryn Choyd, on the summit of a rock called Craig yr Adwy, a great part of which is in this parish, there are the remains of some ancient entrenchments extending in the form of a crescent, and terminating at each extremity in an abrupt precipice ; the area of this camp is about seven acres. .
