History

Llangollen takes its name from Saint Collen (from the Welsh llan meaning 'church' and gollen meaning Collen), a 6th century monk who founded a church beside the river there.[2] St Collen is said to have arrived in Llangollen by coracle. As there are no other churches in Wales dedicated to St. Collen, it is possible that this St. Collen may also have connections in both Colan, Cornwall and Langolen, Brittany.
