Asaph St

Asaph, St., a town in Flintshire, North Wales, 20 miles from Chester. The name of the place was originally Llan-Elvy, but a British saint, who was abbot of the monastery, and perhaps bishop, in the sixth -century, changed its appellation. It has certainly been for about 800 years the seat of a bishopric, and possesses a handsome episcopal palace. The cathedral is a plain structure (1472-1495), and was restored in 1875 by Sir G. Scott.
