Built in 1637, Rug Chapel is a rare example of a 17th century church that avoided 'restoration' by Victorian Gothic revivalists. As such, it retains much of its original wooden carvings and painted surfaces.
It was the private chapel of Colonel William Salesbury, a staunch Royalist who defended the nearby Denbigh Castle for six months during the Civil War.
