Dacre Home, Abergele, Denbighshire, Wales

The Dacre Home at Church House, Llanddulas, Abergele, was opened by the Waifs and Strays Society in 1939 for the wartime evacuation of boys from the Dacre House Home at Rock Ferry. Church House had previously been used as a holiday residence for children from other Society homes.

The home closed in 1941 when its residents were transferred to Stoke-on-Trent.

The building is now home to an evangelical church group.
