St Anno's Church, Llananno, was a medieval church entirely rebuilt in 1876-7 by David Walker, architect of Liverpool. A small single-cell church in nineteenth century Gothic style. Wall tablets, a box pew adapted as a vestry, with simple geometric flower patterns, and a panel with 'David Lewis Churchwarden 1681' in raised letters, and, most importantly, the rood screen of c1500 were all salvaged from the old church. The screen is the most richly decorated and one of the most complete medieval rood screen in Wales.
