Church (Anglican)
Church built in 1867 in the parish of Dwygyfylchi, to serve the expanding population of Penmaenmawr, designed by Alfred Waterhouse. The freestanding tower was added in 1885. St Seiriol's retains many of the original fittings that were designed by the architect.

Editor's response: Thank you for sharing this. I am always sorry to hear of closures, but from the perspective of this website it is a particular loss as there are a number of good windows in the church, particularly the window by Christopher Whall.
