St Nicholas Church in Wales


Rector: Rev. Toni Bennett

St Nicholas Church is Norman, built in 1226. The grand tomb of George Herbert's parents can  be seen here. There is a double Rood Screen and carved angels from the 13th Century mounted on this. The gate through to the church is Elizabethan.
There are some spectacular mid 19th century stained glass windows and the nave ceilings still show their original forms.

The Robber's Grave
In the churchyard is the grave of John Davies of Wrexham. Davies was convicted of highway robbery in 1821, though he protested his innocence. He is said to have prayed to God that no grass should grow on his grave for 100 years as a sign of his innocence. Though he was executed, his prayers may have been answered, for it is said that no grass grew on his grave for well over a century. The 'Robber's Grave' can easily be seen in the churchyard.
