St Margarets, Bodelwyddan. The Marble Church

If you’ve ever driven down the A55 into North Wales, past the turn off for Rhyl you will have seen St Margaret’s Church (The marble church) on the right hand side of the dual carriageway standing like a shiny white beacon besides the road.

St Margaret’s is located in Bodelwyddan and is also know as The Marble Church and only when you go inside will you understand why, a lot of the inside is adorned with marble. Built between 1856 and 1860 and uses red Belgium marble and Anglesey marble as well as some very nice wood and stone carvings, inside and out.

It is now St Asaph cathedral as some web sites are saying, this is located at the previous junction of the A55 at St Asaph and this church has a flat roofed tower unlike St Margaret’s.

and yes, I did make a donation.
