Robert Jones comments briefly on Denbighshire and Flintshire as follows:
Many of the districts of Denbighshire and Flintshire are under the same sort of outpourings, and many have been added to the churches.
There are few accounts extant detailing the progress of revivals in these counties. John Hughes records concerning Holywell, in Flintshire, that in the year 1817, there was a pleasant visitation; – the sun shone on the area after long darkness; – a comfortable spring after a long winter. The Lord made bare his arm and performed wonders. This soon gave a new appearance to the work than that which had been; the chapel was filled with hearers, and many were added to the church.
The date 1817 is almost definitely an error, but whether 1818 or 1819 is to be substituted for it is uncertain. As result of the revival, a new larger chapel was built at a different location in 1825.
