Denbigh, St Hilary's Chapel
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The chapel would have been replaced by the magnificent 16th-century church planned by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, but Leicester's plans came to naught. In 1874 the construction of a new church dedicated to St Mary meant that St Hilary's fell out of use and eventually became so decayed that all except the tower was demolished in 1923.
The original chapel had 5 bays in the nave, plus a chancel, north aisle, and a west tower. The surviving tower stands 15 metres high and has a 15th-century battlemented parapet with gargoyles projecting from it.
