Church and bell towerEdit
The tower of Saint Sadwrn's church is unusual in that it was built separate from the main building housing the congregation. The stone tower, which is built on a rising rock, is sited at the highest point in the churchyard. It is thought this was to increase the range over which the tolling bells could be heard by parishioners. The traditional parish of Henllan covered a large area; today it forms part of the Benefice of Henllan, which includes the parishes of Henllan, Bylchau and Gwytherin.
