Following the announcement of a short ‘firebreak’ lockdown by the Welsh Government as of 6pm on Friday 23 October, all Cadw staffed and unstaffed sites will be closed until further notice.
Until we can welcome you back in person, you can visit us virtually through our Open Doors Online 3D tours. All you’ll need is a mobile phone or a desk-top computer — of if you have a VR head-set you can be fully-immersed inside your selected adventure.
Diolch and we hope to see you again soon.
Simple town church that welcomed a celebrity congregation
Built inside Denbigh’s town walls around the beginning of the 14th century, St Hilary’s Chapel was the town’s original place of worship and remained in use until the late 1800s. After being abandoned, the building fell into disrepair and now only the tower and a short section of the west wall remain.
As well as serving the needs of the local townsfolk, the church received some illustrious visitors during its history. On 28 September 1645 during the Civil War, a service was held here attended by many dignitaries including King Charles I and the Archbishop of York.
