'The ruins of a small, but well-built rectangular structure can be seen on sloping ground east of Llanfihangel-y-Pennant church. It has been reduced to its lower courses of stonework apart from the uphill gable, which now acts as a revetment to the slope and is about 0.6m high. It is not clear if it had mortared walls or just drystone. The only suggestion that this was an ecclesiastical building is the east-west alignment, otherwise it is obscured by an adjacent ridge and visible only from higher ground and from the north west.'
