Really glad I visited this church. So sad reading the gravestones, especially the Canadians that died of the flu after the Great War. Well worth a visit.

10 to 15 minutes walk from Bodelwyddan Castle across busy road.In the light of us being world travelers this is a little underwhelming.The historical links are interesting especially those of the 1st World War and the uprising of the Canadian troops.
