The living is a perpetual curacy, with that of Pen-y-Clawdd annexed, valued in the king's books at £3. 7. 1., and having a net income of £120; it is in the patronage of the Bishop, Archdeacon, and Chapter of Llandaff, the appropriators, whose tithes have been commuted for £170. The church is of considerable antiquity, with a tower.
