Reasons for trip

Holy Trinity Church is splendid and I ended up with so many photographs I’ve decided to split this review into two parts as it is the only way I can include them all! This first part covers some history and general description. Part 2 covers the north transept, aisles and the Carved Angel.

At the beginning of the C19th Llandudno was a small settlement with a population of around 1000. The main employment was in the copper mines on the Great Orme, fishing or subsistence agriculture. In 1848, proposals were put forward to develop the town as a holiday resort, for visitors from Liverpool, Manchester, Crewe and the West Midlands. The first visitors arrive by boat, but the town grew rapidly with the arrival of the railway in 1848. Holy Trinity Church was built to serve the increasing number of holiday visitors.

Building began in 1872 and the church was consecrated two years later. The bell tower was added in 1892 with a peal of eight bells. It is an impressive Neo-gothic building capable of seating over 1000 worshippers. It is seriously BIG!

It is equally as impressive inside with polished marble pillars with carved capitals and a row of black stone picking out the arches. The chancel was extended in 1932 and has a boat shaped wooden roof. There is wood panelling around the base of the chancel and a lovely carved reredos behind the altar with God the Father holding the crucified Christ. The five stained glass windows depict the birth and boyhood of Christ.

The small chapel to left of the chancel is a memorial chapel to the 219 men of the town who lost their lives in the First World War. Their names are are recorded on plaques on the wall. Standards of the Welsh Regiments and ex servicemen’s associations hang from the roof.
