Pilgrimage Part 2: St Winefride’s Holy Well Chapel


St Winefride’s Well Chapel is located in Holywell, Flintshire, North Wales.

The 15th Century chapel was built over the Well, with its crypt providing the vaulted arch ceiling to the Well chamber.


The chapel stands adjacent to St James’s church.


It was thought to have been built by order of Lady Margaret Beaufort (Lady Stanley, mother of Henry VII).

The chapel is kept locked but the key can be obtained for a £5 returnable deposit, from the custodian at St Winefride’s Holy Well Visitor Centre.
