WELCOME TO MOLD THE GATEWAY TO WALES

The Town Council and people of Mold would like to welcome you to their town and to its acclaimed street market, wide range of independent shops, wonderful venues to both eat and drink, rich cultural history and our many great events. Mold is a lovely place to live, work and visit and it is hoped you, as a discerning visitor, can take the time to explore more of just what our great little town has to offer. Theatr Clwyd is renowned for its great plays, music, cinema, and community activities. Here you can experience many performances that have featured on the West End of London and major cities, as well as performances that have a more Welsh cultural appeal. On a Wednesday and Saturday, the town can boast the biggest street market in North Wales. The town also commands some great independent shops and wonderful pubs, restaurants and cafés. Mold is particularly proud of being the first town in Wales to be granted Cittaslow status, which is all about the community helping itself to achieve its aspirations. Mold is probably the first town in Wales where you will hear Welsh spoken as a first language when travelling from northwest England. If time allows, please also explore some of the fantastic countryside surrounding the town – Loggerheads (just 2 miles away) for example, is at the heart of the Clywydian Range an Area of Outstanding National Beauty.

Mold’s events are organised by amazing and diverse groups of volunteers from across the community - they seek to offer something for everyone. Please try out our wonderful literary celebration Daniel Owen Festival (19-25 October), acclaimed Food and Drink Festival (2122 September), fabulous Blues & Soul Festival (2-4 August) and fun packed Town Carnival (6-7 July) and see just what helps make Mold, the jewel in northeast Wales. Have a great visit and it is hoped you will return on a regular basis and count Mold as a favourite destination.

Mold Town Council operates on behalf of all the community of Mold and is responsible for supporting town residents, businesses and visitors.

HISTORY OF MOLD The 19th century author, C.H. Leslie summed up Mold’s appeal when he wrote: “Many strangers visit the place – not all bent on trade – but some merely as tourists.” For the tourist there is history and architecture to appreciate on every corner, from the stunning parish church of St. Mary’s, said to be one of the finest ecclesiastical buildings in Wales, to Plas y Dre, the winter residence of the Nercwys Hall family, and the fine Georgian gothic structure of the former Pendref Chapel. At the top of town, Bailey Hill is a firm reminder of the town’s ancient past and its establishment in Norman times. The remains of the Motte and Bailey castle can clearly still be seen on what would have been a strategic site overlooking the Alyn Valley. In fact, the name Mold, is likely to have been derived from the Norman-French ‘Mont haut’, meaning the ‘high hill’. The castle was built around 1100 AD by Robert, the Norman marcher lord of Moldsdale. He took the name of his new stronghold and was known as Robert de Mont Haut, which slipped into Mohault, then Moald to finally become Mold by 1561. Mold’s Welsh name, Yr Wyddgrug, also derives from its lofty setting and means ‘the mound’. It would be hard not to walk around Mold without coming across reminders of its most famous son, Daniel Owen, considered to be the ‘father of the Welsh novel’ or the “Welsh Charles Dickens” for the wealth and colour of his literature. The Daniel Owen statue stands in the Daniel Owen Square and its inscribed words “Not for the wise and learned have I written, but for the common people” sums up the author’s philosophy. Born in Mold in 1836, Owen was raised in poverty after his father and two of his brothers were drowned in an accident at Argoed Colliery. Politics and religion were always on the agenda during his apprenticeship with local tailor John Angell Jones, and in later life Owen was elected the first chairman of the newly-formed Mold Urban District Council in 1894. Owen’s story features heavily at Mold Library and Museum, which is just a few strides from his statue, and where pride of place among the exhibits is a replica of the Mold Gold Cape. The exhibition - which is housed on the first floor of the town’s library – is also well worth a visit for anyone interested in Mold’s rich history.

The story of the Mold Riots in 1869 is of hard living and working conditions and the reaction of authorities full of anxiety about revolution. Remembered because soldiers fired and killed four people and well-marked in Mold’s history and by a famous fictionalised account in Daniel Owen’s novel Rhys Lewis and even a report made by Karl Marx to an international workers meeting later the same year. This year, Theatr Clwyd are presenting a community theatre production about the Riots and the Tyddyn Street United Reform Church (being a site of the protests) has an exhibition Riots and Reform.

The Gold Cape of Mold A Bronze Age find – the largest piece of pre-historic goldwork in Britain – was unearthed by workmen quarrying for stone at Bryn yr Ellyllon, just off Chester Road, along with the bones of a man and amber beads, in 1833. The cape was crushed and broken when it was unearthed, but has been carefully repaired using reinvented technology to replace the missing 15 per cent of its metal. Original missing fragments of the cape continue to turn up around the town, with the last find coming only 10 years ago. The cape was restored to its former glory with the original now residing in the British Museum and regarded as one of the museums’ most treasured artefacts. The cape dates from between 1900 and 1600 BC and is made from the equivalent of 23-carat gold. It is believed to have been a garment worn for religious ceremonies, fitting over the shoulders, upper arms and body of its wearer. A stone tablet in the wall of a nearby house on Chester Road also marks the spot where the cape was found. An encased replica may be found in Mold Library and Museum, together with the story of how the Gold Cape was discovered and restored is just as fascinating, making a visit to the town Library and Museum time well spent. Other artefacts and displays from Mold’s history on show at the Museum, include the work of local poets, composers and the 18th century landscape and portrait painter, Richard Wilson, who died in Mold in 1782 and whose grave can be found in St Mary’s churchyard.

Mold Museum and Library, which is situated in Daniel Owen Square (off Earl Road), is open Monday to Friday and Saturdays until lunchtime. Admission is free. A Riots and Reform Exhibition is available at Tyddyn Street Church and tells the story of the life and conditions leading up to the Mold Riot in 1869 outside of the newly built church. See www. tyddynstreetchurch.org Exhibition Opening times. 11.30am – 12.30 on 1st Wednesday in the month. Other times by arrangement. Free Admission.

HANES YR WYDDGRUG Crynhodd C.H. Leslie, awdur o’r 19eg ganrif, apêl yr Wyddgrug pan ysgrifennodd: “Many strangers visit the place – not all bent on trade – but some merely as tourists.” Ar gyfer yr ymwelydd, mae hanes a phensaernïaeth i’w gwerthfawrogi ar bob cornel, o eglwys blwyf drawiadol y Santes Fair, un o’r adeiladau eglwysig gorau yng Nghymru yn ôl y sôn, i Blas yn Dre, preswylfa teulu Plas Nercwys yn y gaeaf, ac adeiladwaith gothig Sioraidd braf Capel Pendref blaenorol. Ar ben uchaf y dref mae Bryn y Beili’n atgof cadarn o orffennol hynafol y dref a’i sefydliad yn nyddiau’r Normaniaid. Mae olion y castell tomen a beili’n dal yn amlwg ar yr hyn a fyddai wedi bod yn safle strategol yn edrych dros Ddyffryn Alun. Mewn gwirionedd, mae’n debygol bod yr enw Saesneg Mold yn deillio o’r Ffrangeg Normanaidd ‘Mont haut’, sef y ‘bryn uchel’. Codwyd y castell o gwmpas 1100 OC gan Robert, arglwydd Ystrad Alun, un o arglwyddi Normanaidd y gororau. Galwyd ef yn Robert de Mont Haut o enw’i gadarnle newydd, a lithrodd yn Mohault, yna Moald i ddod yn Mold o’r diwedd erbyn 1561. Mae’r enw Cymraeg, Yr Wyddgrug, hefyd yn deillio o’i leoliad uchel, sef ‘y twmpath’. Byddai’n anodd peidio â cherdded o gwmpas yr Wyddgrug heb ddod ar draws atgofion o’i mab enwocaf, Daniel Owen, sy’n cael ei ystyried yn ‘dad y nofel Gymreig’ neu “Charles Dickens Cymru” am gyfoeth a lliw ei lenyddiaeth. Saif cerflun Daniel Owen yn Sgwâr Daniel Owen ac mae’r geiriau arno “Nid i’r doeth a’r deallus yr ysgrifennais, ond i’r dyn cyffredin” yn crynhoi athroniaeth yr awdur. Wedi’i eni yn yr Wyddgrug yn 1836, magwyd Owen mewn tlodi ar ôl i’w dad a dau o’i frodyr foddi mewn damwain ym Mhwll Glo Argoed. Roedd gwleidyddiaeth a chrefydd bob amser ar yr agenda yn ystod ei brentisiaeth gyda John Angell Jones, teiliwr lleol, ac, yn ddiweddar yn ei oes, etholwyd Daniel Owen yn gadeirydd cyntaf Cyngor Dosbarth Trefol yr Wyddgrug oedd newydd ei ffurfio yn 1894. Mae hanes Daniel Owen yn fawr yn Llyfrgell ac Amgueddfa’r Wyddgrug, sydd ychydig gamau o’i gofgolofn ac yno mewn lle amlwg ymysg yr arddangosion mae atgynhyrchiad o Fantell Aur yr Wyddgrug. Mae’r arddangosfa – sydd ar lawr cyntaf llyfrgell y dref – yn llawn haeddu ymweliad hefyd gan unrhyw un â diddordeb yn hanes cyfoethog yr Wyddgrug.

Cefndir Terfysgoedd yr Wyddgrug yn 1869 yw amgylchiadau byw a gweithio caled ac ymateb awdurdodau’n gorbryderu ynghylch chwyldro. Maent ar gof oherwydd bod milwyr wedi saethu a lladd pedwar o bobl a chawsant eu cofnodi’n dda yn hanes yr Wyddgrug ac yn nisgrifiad ffuglennol enwog Daniel Owen yn ei nofel Rhys Lewis. Soniodd Karl Marx hyd yn oed amdanynt wrth gyfarfod gweithwyr rhyngwladol yn ddiweddarach yr un flwyddyn. Eleni, mae Theatr Clwyd yn cyflwyno cynhyrchiad theatr gymunedol ynghylch y Terfysgoedd ac mae’r Eglwys Unedig Ddiwygiedig yn Stryd y Tyddyn (sef safle’r protestiadau) yn cynnal arddangosfa Terfysgoedd a Diwygio.

Mantell Aur yr Wyddgrug Datgladdwyd y darganfyddiad hwn o’r Oes Efydd – y darn mwyaf o waith aur cynhanesyddol ym Mhrydain – yn 1833 gan weithwyr yn cloddio am garreg ym Mryn yr Ellyllon, ychydig oddi ar Ffordd Caer, ynghyd ag esgyrn dyn a gleiniau gwefr. Roedd y fantell wedi’i malu a’i thorri pan ddaeth i’r amlwg, ond fe’i trwsiwyd yn ofalus trwy ailddyfeisio technoleg i lenwi’r 15 y cant o’i metel oedd ar goll. Mae darnau gwreiddiol o’r fantell yn dal i ddod i’r amlwg o gwmpas y dref, gyda’r darganfyddiad diwethaf ond 10 mlynedd yn ôl. Adferwyd y fantell i’w gogoniant gyda’r gwreiddiol yn byw bellach yn yr Amgueddfa Brydeinig ac yn cael ei hystyried yn un o arteffactau mwyaf gwerthfawr yr amgueddfa. Mae’r fantell yn dyddio o rywbryd rhwng 1900 a 1600 CC ac fe’i ffurfiwyd o’r hyn sy’n cyfateb i aur 23 carat. Y gred yw y gwisgwyd hi ar gyfer defodau crefyddol, dros ysgwyddau a breichiau a chorff uchaf y gwisgwr. Ar fur tŷ ar Ffordd Caer gerllaw gosodwyd carreg hefyd i nodi’r fan lle darganfuwyd y fantell. Mae copi ohoni mewn cas yn Llyfrgell ac Amgueddfa’r Wyddgrug, ac mae hanes sut y cafwyd hyd i’r Fantell Aur a’i hadfer yr un mor ddiddorol, fel bod ymweliad â Llyfrgell ac Amgueddfa’r dref yn llawn haeddu’r amser.

Mae arteffactau ac arddangosfeydd eraill o hanes yr Wyddgrug, sydd i’w weld yn yr Amgueddfa, yn cynnwys gwaith beirdd a chyfansoddwyr lleol a Richard Wilson, y paentiwr tirluniau a phortreadau o’r 18fed ganrif, a fu farw yn yr Wyddgrug yn 1782 gyda’i fedd i’w weld ym mynwent eglwys y Santes Fair.

Mae Amgueddfa a Llyfrgell yr Wyddgrug, sydd yn Sgwâr Daniel Owen (oddi ar Ffordd yr Iarll), ar agor o ddydd Llun i ddydd Gwener ac ar Sadyrnau tan amser cinio. Mynediad am ddim. Mae Arddangosfa Terfysgoedd a Diwygio i’w gweld yn Eglwys Stryd y Tyddyn ac mae’n dweud hanes y bywyd ac amgylchiadau’n arwain at Derfysg yr Wyddgrug yn 1869 oddi allan i’r eglwys newydd. Gwelwch www.tyddynstreetchurch.org. Amserau agor yr Arddangosfa yw 11.30am – 12.30 ar ddydd Mercher cyntaf y mis. Amserau eraill trwy drefniant. Mynediad am Ddim.

TOWN TRAIL

Try the Mold App on Android and Apple mobile platforms (Books and Reference section) and experience iBeacon’s at key locations Why not travel back in time by taking a short walk around Mold? The Mold Town Trail has been designed to include many of the town’s historic locations. You will spot some fascinating buildings and enjoy some great views – and it should take you only a couple of hours to complete. • The trail starts by the statue of Daniel Owen outside Mold Library and Museum. Turn right into EARL ROAD (1), home to many fine buildings including the Town Hall which was built in 1911 thanks to a donation from local industrialist Peter Roberts of Bromfield Hall. • Every town needs a ghost and Mold’s lives at 30 HIGH STREET (2) - corner of High Street and Earl Road. People claim to have seen a young girl, said to be a former shopkeeper’s daughter who died of small pox, looking out of the window. • Walk up the High Street for a short distance and you will find a plaque high on the wall of Barclay’s Bank commemorating JOHN AMBROSE LLOYD (3), the famous Welsh composer, who was born here in 1815. He wrote over 90 hymns, many of which were named after places locally including ‘Wyddgrug’. • Further up is the timber-framed former DOLPHIN PUBLIC HOUSE (4), which was built around 1900. The Dolphin comes from the crest of Sir George Wynne of Leeswood Hall, who made his fortune from lead mining on Halkyn Mountain. • Bearing left onto Pwll Glas is PENDREF CHAPEL (5), now the King’s Christian Centre, a fine example of Georgian gothic architecture which cost just £1,600 to build in 1827. When the chapel opened its doors over 2,000 people gathered on BAILEY HILL (6) to listen to the Reverend Thomas preach. • (6) You can take the path by the side of the chapel up the hill to the site of the ancient Motte and Bailey castle and take in the views across the Alyn Valley. Before you do pick up a copy of the ‘Mold Trail Bailey Hill’ from the town library. • Moving up Pwll Glas on the left is the former COTTAGE HOSPITAL (7), which was built in 1877 and paid for by public donations and the Grosvenor Estate, whose traditional diamond pattern brickwork can be seen. The hospital closed in 1977, but is still used for healthcare.

• Opposite is TAN Y COED (8) where the distinctive stone carvings along the top of the wall are said to have come from the tower of the original parish church. • Then retrace your steps back down towards the town centre where 95 HIGH STREET (9), currently a solicitors’ office, is one of the oldest houses in town. It was built in the 17th century and at one time it was a girls’ school called The Limes. • Standing prominently on the left is ST MARY’S PARISH CHURCH (10), which was commissioned by Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry Tudor and wife of Stanley, the Lord of Mold, in thanksgiving for her son’s victory at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. It took about 100 years to build and many of the heraldic emblems of the Stanleys, including the eagle and the claw, the pelican, and the three legs of Man can be seen throughout the church. Also look out for Lloyd George in the stonework in the top left of the main entrance on the south porch. St Mary’s is normally open for viewing on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings from May to September. • Close to the back entrance of the church is the TOMB OF RICHARD WILSON (11), the famous landscape painter who influenced both Constable and Turner. Wilson spent much of his childhood in Mold and came back to live at Colomendy Hall, where he died in 1782. • Further down on the right at 24 High Street is PLAS YN DRE (12), the former winter residence of the Nercwys Hall family. • Head to the far side of Mold Bus Station, and tucked behind the old police station and accessed via the steps from Chester Street, is the OLD COURT HOUSE (13). Small holes in the stonework are said to be from bullets fired during the 1869 Mold Riot and there are also the remains of the old ‘decency railings’, used to deter men from urinating against the wall! • The OLD POLICE STATION (14) was the headquarters of Flintshire Constabulary during the 1950s with the handy telephone number of Mold 321. Go under the archway by the Savoy Restaurant sign and you will find PRICE’S ROW (15), a courtyard made up of the only remaining nineteenth century workers’ houses in Mold, which were built by blacksmith Josiah Price.

• Cross the road into Tyddyn Street you will find the wonderful UNITED REFORMED CHURCH (16) containing an exhibition on the life and time leading to the Mold Riots of 1869 (open by arrangement with the Church – see www. tyddynstreetchurch.org)

• And a short distance down Chester Street is the town’s LIVESTOCK MARKET (17), which opened in 1879 and where you can see original cobbled surfaces, stables and livery rooms. • Further on and standing on the crossroads at the corner of High Street and New Street is the ASSEMBLY HALL (18), now Lloyds Bank. For over 150 years it was the focal point of Mold with an indoor market on the ground floor and rooms above for meetings and concerts. A third floor, removed in 1985, was used as a cinema in the 1920s and hosted a Beatles concert in the early 1960s. • Next door is Y PENTAN (19), a pub named after one of novelist Daniel Owen’s short stories and at one time the site of Mold’s literary son’s tailors’ shop. Owen’s story continues on the left further down New Street at the strikingly pillared BETHESDA CHAPEL AND SCHOOLROOMS (20). It was here that the Rev. Roger Edwards became a major influence on the budding writer at a time when fiction was frowned upon by Methodists. The chapel, dating from 1819, was rebuilt in 1863 and the schoolrooms were added in 1893 in honour of Daniel Owen, while the obelisk in front is a tribute to the Rev. Edwards. • Owen’s words appear in English, Welsh and Latin on the DANIEL OWEN STATUE (21) in the nearby Daniel Owen Square: “Not for the wise and learned have I written, but for the common people” states the memorial which was moved here from its original location in County Hall Fields. • The trail ends at MOLD LIBRARY AND MUSEUM (22) next door where you should look out for ‘One Voice’, the eight large heads that celebrate the Alleluia Victory of 447AD above the walkway to the library. A visit to the museum is essential and it is where you can see a replica of the Mold Gold Cape. • NB: The Town Trail is around 1.25 miles/2km long and there is a steep climb up steps to the top of Bailey Hill. There are public toilets in the Daniel Owen Centre next to the library and museum, the bus station and in New Street car park at the back of Bethesda Chapel.

Pan agorodd y capel ei ddrysau casglodd dros 2,000 o bobl ar FRYN Y BEILI (6) i wrando ar y Parchedig Thomas yn pregethu. • (6) Gallwch ddilyn y llwybr wrth ochr y capel i fyny’r allt i safle’r castell tomen a beili hynafol a mwynhau’r golygfeydd dros Ddyffryn Alun. Cyn i chi wneud hynny, codwch gopi o ‘Llwybr yr Wyddgrug – Bryn y Beili’ o lyfrgell y dref. • Ymlaen i fyny Pwll Glas ar y chwith mae’r hen YSBYTY BWTHYN (7), a godwyd yn 1877 drwy roddion y cyhoedd ac Ystâd Grosvenor, gyda’i fricwaith patrwm diemwnt traddodiadol i’w weld. Caeodd yr ysbyty yn 1977, ond mae’n dal i gael ei ddefnyddio ar gyfer gofal iechyd.

• Gyferbyn mae TAN Y COED (8) lle dywedir bod y cerfiadau carreg neilltuol ar ben y wal wedi dod o dŵr eglwys wreiddiol y plwyf. • Trowch yn ôl i gyfeiriad canol y dref lle mae 95 STRYD FAWR (9), swyddfa twrneiod ar hyn o bryd, yn un o’r tai hynaf yn y dref. Fe’i codwyd yn yr 17eg ganrif ac, ar un adeg, roedd yn ysgol merched o’r enw The Limes. • Mewn lle amlwg ar y chwith mae EGLWYS BLWYF Y SANTES FAIR (10), a gomisiynwyd gan Margaret Beaufort, mam Harri Tudur a gwraig Stanley, Arglwydd yr Wyddgrug, i ddiolch am fuddugoliaeth ei mab ym Mrwydr Bosworth yn 1485. Cymrodd ryw 100 mlynedd i’w chodi ac mae llawer o arwyddluniau herodrol y teulu Stanley, gan gynnwys yr eryr a’r grafanc, y pelican, a thair coes Manaw, i’w gweld ymhob rhan o’r eglwys. Hefyd gwyliwch am Lloyd George yn y gwaith carreg ar chwith uchaf y brif fynedfa ym mhorth y de. Fel arfer, mae’r eglwys ar agor i ymwelwyr ar brynhawniau Mercher a boreau Sadwrn o fis Mai i fis Medi • Yn agos at fynedfa gefn yr eglwys mae bedd RICHARD WILSON (11), y tirluniwr enwog a ddylanwadodd ar Constable a Turner. Treuliodd Wilson lawer o’i blentyndod yn yr Wyddgrug a daeth yn ôl i fyw i Blas Colomendy, lle bu farw yn 1782. • Yn is i lawr ar y dde yn 24 Stryd Fawr mae PLAS YN DRE (12), preswylfa flaenorol teulu Plas Nercwys yn y gaeaf. • Anelwch am ochr bellaf Gorsaf Fysiau’r Wyddgrug ac, yn swatio y tu ôl i hen orsaf yr heddlu i fyny’r grisiau o Stryd Caer, mae’r HEN LYS (13). Yn ôl y sôn, gwnaed y tyllau bach yn y gwaith carreg gan fwledi a daniwyd yn ystod Terfysg yr Wyddgrug yn 1869. Hefyd mae olion yr hen ‘reilin gwedduster’, a ddefnyddiwyd i annog dynion rhag gollwng dŵr yn erbyn y mur! • HEN ORSAF YR HEDDLU (14) oedd pencadlys Heddlu Sir Fflint yn ystod y 1950au gyda’r rhif ffôn defnyddiol Yr Wyddgrug 321. Ewch drwy’r porth bwaog wrth arwydd Bwyty’r Savoy ac fe welwch PRICE’S ROW (15), cwrt o’r unig dai gweithwyr o’r bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg sydd ar ôl yn yr Wyddgrug, a godwyd gan Josiah Price y gof. • Croeswch y ffordd i Stryd y Tyddyn ac fe welwch yr EGLWYS UNEDIG DDIWYGIEDIG ryfeddol (16) yn cynnwys arddangosfa ar fywyd yn y cyfnod yn arwain at Derfysgoedd

yr Wyddgrug yn 1869 (ar agor trwy drefniant gyda’r Eglwys – gwelwch www. tyddynstreetchurch.org) • Ychydig ffordd i lawr Stryd Caer mae MARCHNAD ANIFEILIAID Y DREF (17), a agorodd yn 1879 a lle gallwch weld arwynebau cobls, stablau a marchdai gwreiddiol. • Ymhellach ymlaen ac yn sefyll ar y groesffordd y Stryd Fawr a Stryd Newydd mae’r NEUADD GYNNULL (18), Banc Lloyds bellach. Am fwy na 150 mlynedd roedd yn ganolbwynt yr Wyddgrug gyda marchnad dan do ar y llawr isaf ac ystafelloedd uwchben ar gyfer cyfarfodydd a chyngherddau. Defnyddiwyd trydydd llawr, a dynnwyd yn 1985, fel sinema yn y 1920au ac fe gynhaliodd y Beatles gyngerdd yno yn y 1960au cynnar. • Drws nesaf mae Y PENTAN (19), tafarn a enwyd ar ôl un o storïau byrion y nofelydd Daniel Owen ac ar un adeg yn safle siop teilwriaid mab llenyddol yr Wyddgrug. Mae hanes Daniel Owen yn parhau ar y chwith yn is i lawr Stryd Newydd yng NGHAPEL ac YSGOLDY BETHESDA (20) gyda’i golofnau trawiadol. Dyma ble daeth y Parch. Roger Edwards yn ddylanwad cryf ar yr egin ysgrifennwr ar adeg pan oedd y Methodistiaid yn gwgu ar ffuglen. Yn 1863 adeiladwyd y capel, oedd yn dyddio o 1819, ac fe ychwanegwyd yr ysgoldy yn 1893 er anrhydedd i Daniel Owen, tra bo’r obelisg ar y blaen yn deyrnged i’r Parch. Roger Edwards. • Mae geiriau Daniel Owen i’w gweld mewn Cymraeg, Saesneg a Lladin ar GOFGOLOFN DANIEL OWEN (21) yn Sgwâr Daniel Owen gerllaw: “Nid i’r doeth a’r deallus yr ysgrifennais, ond i’r dyn cyffredin” sydd ar y gofgolofn a symudwyd yma o’i lleoliad gwreiddiol yng Nghaeau Neuadd y Sir. • Daw’r llwybr i ben yn LLYFRGELL AC AMGUEDDFA’R WYDDGRUG (22) ac, uwchlaw’r rhodfa i’r llyfrgell, dylech weld ‘Un Llais’, yr wyth pen mawr sy’n dathlu Buddugoliaeth yr Haleliwia yn y flwyddyn 447. Mae ymweliad â’r amgueddfa’n hanfodol ac yno gallwch weld copi o Fantell Aur yr Wyddgrug. • DS: Mae Llwybr y Dref o gwmpas 1.25 milltir / 2km o hyd ac mae dringfa serth i fyny grisiau i ben Bryn y Beili. Mae toiledau cyhoeddus yng Nghanolfan Daniel Owen ar bwys y llyfrgell ac amgueddfa, yn yr orsaf fysiau ac ym maes parcio Stryd Newydd y tu cefn i Gapel Bethesda..

MOLD’S RETAIL OFFERING Mold is bucking the trend among small towns thanks to a host of thriving independent traders, restaurateurs and friendly, quality bars. The town also has plenty to offer for the more discerning shopper, drawn in by its wonderful array of specialist and unique outlets alongside national High Street names. Mold has some great small businesses offering a first-class customer service as well as novel products that add real spice to its shopping streets along with a bustling twice weekly street market (on Wednesdays and Saturdays). A wealth of specialist shops stock a variety of goods from fine wines and fashion to furniture and jewellery. There is literally something for everyone. Hobbyists are well catered for: specialist fabric shop, AMANDA’S FABRICS In Earl Rd, whilst in the MOLD BOOK SHOP (Upper High Street), Caroline Johnson sources books by local, national and international authors, alongside artists’ materials, both oils and water. If ladies’ fashions are sought, then Wrexham Street is the destination for you! Here you will find APHRODYTE, JANE DAVIES and SIMMI (in Grosvenor Road) – they are bound to have something new for that special occasion. Gentlemen are also catered for in the highly regarded VAUGHAN DAVIES shop, a distinguished independent menswear and ladies wear outlet at The Cross, which has been trading in Mold for over 70 years. It even offers a tailoring service to provide an exact fit. Welsh shops, SIOP Y SISWRN and MATI & MEG (New Street) selling souvenirs like love spoons and jewellery, Welsh language books and interior design furnishings many with that special Welsh flavour.

In Upper High Street, TAILS-A-WAGGIN provides for all your pets’ creature comfort and speaking of comfort, CHURCHILL CARPETS provide a vast array of beautiful rugs and carpets. The award winning – best Deli in Wales 2019 - OLIVE TREE (Upper High Street) and TASTERS (Daniel Owen Precinct) Delicatessens along with CJ’S amazing traditional butchers – try their Hafod Real Ale sausages …add to the town’s growing foodie offering, culminating in a Food and Drink Festival in September…. Give HULSON’S PIES a chance (Wrexham Street) for a traditional meat pie using the same recipe for nearly 50 years that have locals queuing out of the door! Then there are electrical shops, hardware and bakers rubbing cheek by jowl with the big High Street names such as WH SMITH, ARGOS, BOOTS and B&M, to ensure that Mold town centre meets everyone’s shopping needs. It is not hard to see why you could easily make a day of a trip to Mold, for as well as the shops there is plenty to see and do in this a great cultural centre in north-east Wales. For example, a visit to Theatr Clwyd, which includes two theatres, a cinema and

an art gallery, is a must do activity.
