In Welsh Denbych literally means Little Fortress, through the centuries this small border town has been a focal point of fierce contention having been a garrison during the civil war and a royal residency for Welsh princes. Although today they are in ruins, the castle and defence walls are still an impressive sight. Upon request from the library visitors may have access to the gate key and walk the town walls, other fascinating points of interest include St Hilary’s Chapel, Burgess Gate and the Denbigh Friary. Also just below the castle is Leicester’s Folly, a large row of arches which mark the unfinished site of an Elizabethan cathedral.
The town museum, Cae Dai 50s museum and the Wireless in Wales museum are all worth a visit, for a day out on the course there is a local golf club available for visitors to use with stunning views out across to the Clwydian Hills. The visitor centre at Llyn Brenig reservoir has plenty of outdoor activities to choose from and walking & mountain biking trails through the forestry. The rugged Denbigh moors are another hot spot for walking and wildlife enthusiasts.
