Extract from Glamorgan, it's History and Topography [C.J.O. Evans, 1953]
TONNA, 2 miles north-east of Neath, is a colliery town opposite Aberdulais. To the south on the slope of Cefn Morfydd, is Ivy Tower, a round building from which may be obtained magnificent views of the beautiful vale of Neath. The church is dedicated to St. Anne and was built in 1891 in Gothic style. It consists of an aspidal chancel, transepts, nave, and a tower on the north side which contains three bells and has a spire.
