More about this scene

Situated six miles south-east of Mold, Caergwrle is a small castle comprising the ruins of three round towers and a polygonal turret; it was captured and destroyed in 1282.

Dafydd sparked off the revolt of 1282 by taking Hawarden Castle. The following year he was betrayed to the English, captured, and taken to Shrewsbury, where he was hung, drawn and quartered.

Other Memories from Caergwrle

My Dad Glynn Hayes Bellis was born in Caergwrle in 1932. He has a brother Tony and sisters Elena, Lynne and Christine. He lived on one of the farms with my Nan and Grandad. Did anyone know the family and where about in the village they lived? Thanks Juliette Reeves (nee Bellis)

Anybody from Hope / Caergwle, got any photos, handbills, posters, paper cuttings etc..on the boxing brothers the Fighting Fieldings? Obviously I would pay for them, as I'm researching for doing a book on boxers from North Wales. I know Bobby was the the one who fought two world champions; Jackie Brown and Benny Lynch. Look forward to any replies.

Yes I used to walk from the Lump, with Micky, Idris, Arthur Cartwright, Brian Merredith, Neville Shone and more. One of us would pay and some of us try to crawl past the little pay window and get in for free. Great memories.
