Caer Drewyn Hillfort, Corwen

Caer Drewyn Hillfort
This ancient monument is testament to what was once an impressive hill fort, overlooking the River Dee, and what were once Iron Age route-ways through the rolling mountains. At a later time a stone fort structure was built here. Today just the stone built rampart exists, and the hill itself of course, offering amazing views of Corwen. There are both steeper and more gradual routes up to the forte, with a bench on the steeper route, to rest and have a picnic before continuing up. For those in good health, this is an easily conquered walk.

Rhug Chapel, Corwen

Rhug Chapel
This rare example of a 17th century chapel was founded by ‘old blue socks’ himself, Colonel William Salesbury, in a collaboration with the famous Bishop William Morgan, who was the first man to translate the bible into Welsh. True character flows through this beautiful building, as hidden treasures are everywhere, including wooden carved angels, an elaborately decorated roof, beams with intertwined roses painted across their entirety, and carvings on the alter rails, family pews and bench ends. Quite breathtaking.
