St Winefride's Church is located on a steep hillside below the small town of Holywell, North Wales. The church is one of a number of North East Wales churches known as "Stanley Churches" after Lord Stanley and his wife Margaret Beaufort who were benefactors to the churches following the accession of Henry Tudor (Margaret's son)to the throne of England. The churches are all of similar late 15th Century "perpendicular" style, which is uncommon to most of North Wales. They have a pleasant yellow sandstone and are usually populated with interesting grotesques, gargoyles, and multiple carvings of strange animals running around the string course or frieze.
