The parish church of Llanidloes is dedicated to St Idloes, a seventh century saint about whom very little is known. His feast is celebrated on September 6th and this church is the only one in his dedication. Three manuscripts testify he was the son of Gwyddnabi ab Llawfrodedd who was a red-bearded knight.
