This place derives its name from the river Cevni, upon which it is situated. The church, dedicated to St. Cyngar, is a spacious structure, thirtythree yards long and ten wide, with a lofty square embattled tower crowned with pinnacles. It was built in 1824. There are places of worship for Baptists, Independents, and Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists.[1]
