Llanrwst is a small town and community on the A470 road and the River Conwy in Conwy County Borough, Wales. It takes its name from the 5th- to 6th-century Saint Grwst, "church or parish" llan "of St Grwst".Llanrwst developed around the wool trade, but also became renowned for harp and clock manufacture. Today, lying as it does on the edge of Snowdonia (Snowdonia starts about 3/4 mile away on the other side of the river Conwy ), its main industry—aside that of being a market town—is tourism.Notable buildings in Llanrwst include the almshouses, two 17th-century chapels and the Parish Church of St Grwst, which holds the stone coffin of Llywelyn the Great.In the 2011 census the population of the town was 3,323.HistoryThe site of the original church dedicated to St Grwst was Cae Llan in Llanrwst . The current church is on land which was donated in around 1170 by Rhun ap Nefydd Hardd, a member of the royal family of the Kingdom of Gwynedd, specifically to build a new church dedicated to Grwst.
