St Margaret’s Church, also known as the Marble Church, was built between 1856 and 1860, and is located just off the A55 Expressway [Junction 25]. The church tower stands at 62 metres high and is visible for miles around.
The church was built with a type of limestone resembling porcelain. Expert stonemasons were recruited from around North Wales. The interior features fourteen kinds of marble from Ireland, England, France and Italy. The Victorian stained-glass windows are stunning.
Immediately to the west of the church is Kinmel camp, which was a military camp located in the grounds of Kinmel Hall. The camp was used by Canadian troops during the First World War. The churchyard contains the graves of numerous victims of the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-1919 in the camp. In total there are 112 Commonwealth service personnel commemorated here from World War 1.
The church is open daily for private prayer and meditation and visitors are very welcome.
