The picture above (TOP) is from Rhyl History Club Community Archive and shows Brunswick Chapel which used to be in Brighton Road on a corner of Thorpe Street.

The Brunswick opened in 1874 as the Welsh-speaking sister of the English Methodist Church in Bath Street, and it was the biggest Methodist place of worship in the area. It closed in 1987 and the congregation moved to Soar Chapel, Sisson Street.

The other photo was taken this week by Yours Truly and shows the site is now occupied by a block of flats named Llys Brunswick. The flats are for the elderly and are owned and managed by Denbighshire County Council.
