Llangar Church is even older than Rug. This small medieval building stands in an idyllic setting a mile or so south of Rug overlooking the confluence of the Dee and Alwen rivers. Like Rug, Llangar takes visitors back to another age. The church, superseded by a new one at nearby Cynwryd in the 1850s, retains many ancient features, including extensive 15th century wall paintings, an 18th century figure of death, old beams, box pews, pulpit and minstrels' gallery. The guide said that the building could date back to the 10th Century. Although it could not be proved. It was compulsory for Archer's to practice on Sunday's after the Church service and the pillars either side of the Church door shows where the sharpened their arrows. On the building of the new church Llangar was locked up in 1854 and was not taken over by CADW until 1964.
