St Giles Parish Church on Wrexham travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Churches and Chapels in Wales and England >  St Giles Parish Church
The 135-foot tower of this church is one of the Seven Wonders of Wales. Many different periods of local history are in evidence including a 14th century effigy, the 16th-century structure and a Tudor Perpendicular Gothic interior. When you visit you should look up to see the glorious painted and gilded angels near the roof, and a rare Doom painting on the wall above the chancel arch. The tour of the tower and the view from the top are worth the visit alone. The church is open daily for visitors, private prayer etc. Around the church you can also see: the grave of Elihu Yale, benefactor of the church and of Yale University - the startling memorial of Mary Myddelton of Chirk Castle (spot the repairs to the wall) - two memorial windows honouring the local regiment, the Royal Welch Fusiliers.

Strange but True? A friend, Ray Rodgers, tells me that excavations that took place in the late 1970’s, during building works on the corner of Hope Street and High Street, uncovered remains of a tunnel that ran for a few hundred yards. It was thought that the tunnel may have been a secret escape route for priests from St Giles’ Church, but this was not confirmed.
