Not far from St. Asaph you might spot the former St. Clare’s Convent. You’re probably most likely to spot it if you’re on a coach. Car drivers are far too busy to notice.
This is a number of large buildings which used to be a convent, which included a hospital and an orphanage school. It was built in 1862 and closed in 1977/78. The building was damaged by fire in 1985. The conversion began in 2003 and includes 40 homes.
Whilst the use of the buildings are not of particular note, the architecture and its restoration are outstanding and their location next to the A55 makes them an obvious landmark for users of the road.
