[edit | edit source]

"LLANBERIS (LLAN-BERIS), a parish in the hundred of Isgorvai, county of Carnarvon, 9.5 miles (E.S.E.) from Carnarvon, on the road to Capel-Curig, continaing 725 inhabitants. This place derives its name from the dedication of its church to St, Peris, a British, or according to some accounts, a Roman saint, who is said to have been a cardinal of Rome, and to have resided in this sequestered spot with Padarn, an anchorite who had a cell, or small chapeli, in a meadow between the site of Dolbadarn castle and that of the present Dolbadarn Inn. ... The  church, dedicated to St. Peris, and situated in a deeply sequestered glen, about a quarter of a mile above Llyn Peris, is a mall, low, criciform structure, principalliy in the later style of English architecture, with some portions of a much earlier date, probably of the seventh century, which are parts of the original edifice: the more modern part is supposed to have been erected in the reign of Henry VI.
