History

Cornerstone laid 5 July 1865; designed by George Felton, architect to Mostyn Estate, and built in order to accommodate the large numbers of visitors to the new mid C19 resort of Llandudno for which the Church of St George, built in 1840, was proving too small. Land was given by the Mostyn family, and from 1859 funds were raised by private and public subscription. By 1872, £10,000 had been spent; consecration 29 July 1874. Tower erected 1892. The Memorial Chapel dates from 1924. In 1931-32, the chancel was extended.
