The first church on this site was probably built in the early medieval period. In 1273 it was regarded as a chapelry of Llangollen and belonged to Valle Crucis Abbey. The church still plays a big part in the life of the community and full details of events and church service times can be found on the St Tecla's Newsletter page.
In recent years St Tecla's has created a Visitor Centre for the many visitors we have passing through the village. A series of information boards tell the story of life in and around the village through images and text. During the Covid lockdown we are sharing those boards here for your information.
A warm welcome awaits you at St Tecla's Visitor Centre. With exhibition panels explaining some of our local history, wildlife and Offa's Dyke please feel free to have your packed lunch in our church with free refreshments and a toilet at your disposal.
We are currently hosting an Exhibition of Artwork by the children of Ysgol Dyffryn Ial, our village school. Do call in and see their work and visit the outdoor Butterfly garden which the children have also been involved with.
