The Grosvenor family were a wealthy family who had owned land in Flintshire for generations and the area provided ample mining and agricultural opportunities. In the 1820s they were looking to build a second family seat. It was decided to build Halkyn Castle in the middle of the village. To accommodate such extravagance, the local roads had to be realigned and the parish church needed to be relocated. The resulting estate included a grand garden and a small adjoining park.
