The original "Llan" probably dates back to the 6th century, as there was once an inscribed stone (lost) in the area. Rhidian is probably a corruption of 'Tryrulhid', who was St. Illtyd's wife. The church itself is 13th century with the present chancel and tower added in the 14th century. A large stone block named 'the Parson's block' tops the massive west tower. This structure was originally a fire beacon to give warning of enemies approaching by land or sea.
