Pantasaph, North Wales


The church was dedicated to St. David, with St. Asaph as a secondary patron, and was opened on the 13th of October 1852. It is located 3 miles from Holywell. A beautiful church from the outside, St David´s is also blessed with some stunning and very aesthetic stained glass and statues within the church itself.

The Church of St. David at Pantasaph, near Holywell, is set in a trough of land between the villages of Gorsedd and Brynford in rolling green countryside high above the Dee Estuary. The name Pantasaph speaks of a Catholic past and in the 7th century St. Asaph, who ministered in this region, became the local Bishop of Llanelwy, which was renamed St.Asaph after his death.
