Denbigh, St Hilary's Chapel
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.
