About Denbigh

The setting of the small market town of Denbigh, in the Vale of Clwyd can really be described as stunning. The town nestles in its hollow while behind it stands the huge, ancient ruined castle and city walls set against the backdrop of hills.

Records of the town go back to the eleventh century when Denbigh was a Royal residence for Welsh princes. Edward the first left his mark here, as he did on many towns in North Wales, as he marched through with his impregnable army on his conquest of Wales and the Welsh. Edward the first build the mighty castle in 1282 as an important border fortress. It was many centuries after this that the townsfolk of Denbigh knew peace again as the Welsh and the English continued to feud and fight over the land for many years.

The last moments of glory for the castle was as a hiding place for escaping royalists during Oliver Cromwell's revolution. After that the building fell into ruin.

The name Denbigh in Welsh is Den Bych, which means little fortress. In the reign of the first Elizabeth Denbigh was the largest and richest town in Wales. The town outside the castle walls grew around the glove making industry, served by the sheep farmers on the nearby hills.

Denbigh has not had a railway since 1962 but it is easy to reach by road being not far off the A55, which goes through nearby St Asaph, with its famous white (marble) church.

The town is still lively with many organisation including the oldest Cricket Club in Wales, established in 1844, which is still going strong today.

Activities start on Boxing Day with a traditional barrel rolling competition in the town square. There is a midsummer festival, the Denbigh Show, ClayArts potters' market, a monthly market with lots of local produce, the Cymru Cuba salsa festival, a country show, Denbigh and Flint annual show, a beer festival, a walking festival and an open doors heritage weekend.

Denbigh also has many tales of the supernatural and UFO sightings. Ghosts abound in the castle and pubs around the town and there are more UFO sightings here than in many other towns in the area.
