From medieval monuments to historic memorials, Whitford Church bears witness to centuries of local history. We house an impressive collection of late medieval funerary stones and other archaeological finds dating from around the tenth to the fifteenth century. There are many memorials to the local Mostyn and Pennant families, including Thomas Pennant (1726–1798), the internationally-renowned naturalist. antiquarian and author of the Tours in Wales. Pennant’s artist and collaborator Moses Griffith is buried in the churchyard. An unusual sloping nave provides a dramatic view of the beautiful stained glass at the east end of the church.

We are a stopping point on the North Wales Pilgrims Way from Holywell to Bardsey Island. Call in and see us! The church is always open and refreshments are available.
