History and amenities

The village takes its name from the original dedication of the parish church to St. Isan or Issien, who was said to have been a follower of the 6th century Celtic St. Illtyd. The church is mentioned in the 12th century Book of Llandaff.

The existing church is dedicated to St. Dennis. It was completely rebuilt in 1852–54 and no evidence of an earlier church remains.

The village is set within what is termed the Wye Valley Forest Park, the upland area within the River Wye AONB.
