Holy Trinity, Llandudno
Holy Trinity Church was opened on Wednesday 5th July 1865 having been built by architect George Felton on land donated by Lady Augusta Mostyn. It was not finally consecrated until 1874. The first of 16 stained glass windows was installed in 1875.The tower was completed in 1892 and the following year a peal of eight bells by John Taylor of Loughborough was installed. In 1899 following a suicide on the premises the church was re-consecrated by the Bishop of Bangor. In 1923 the then vestry was demolished to make way for the Memorial Chapel. A new organ was installed in 1926 and the chancel extended in 1932. The church bells were fully restored in 2002. The church celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015.
