The mosaics were found underneath a forty-year-old maroon carpet.

What started as a repair project for some routine improvements became something special, which has created a warm, light and inspiring church where people can easily see and hear what’s going on and can worship in comfort.

The incorporation of the beautifully restored Victorian mosaics and tiling have transformed the appearance of the chancel.

– The Bishop of St Asaph, the Rt Revd Gregory Cameron
