The village lies in the valley of the River Wyre and contains the roadbridge where the B4576 crosses the Wyre downstream of which lies the confluence of the rivers Beidiog and the Wyre. The name Llangwyryfon derives from the tale of Saint Ursula to whom the village church is dedicated. Llan is Welsh for church and the gwyryddon are the 11,000 virgins who Ursula was martyred along with.
