Residential manor house of the bishop of St Asaph mentioned in the Valor Ecclesiasticus reformation survey. (Thompson)

Thompson includes Llandegla and Meliden (both Denbighshire) in his list of residences of the bishops of St Asaph, with the Valor Ecclesiasticus cited as the source. In the Valor, Llandegla, Meliden and St Martin's (Shropshire) are simply called "manerium de" so there is no definitive mention of a manor house, although all of the small number of other holdings are called "terra" (lands) or "dominio" (lordship). (Payne, 2003)

Gatehouse Comments

The likely location of the manor house (which would have had a steward even if not a bishops residence) would be near the church at the given location.
