Mold is a town in Flintshire, North East Wales. It is located between the Clwydian Mountains to the west and the plains of Cheshire (and the ancient walled town of Chester) to the east, the estuary of the River Dee to the north, and the town of Wrexham to the south. Mold is a friendly market town where family run businesses rub shoulders with High Street names. There are bustling street markets every Wednesday and Saturday, the street trading being a tradition in Mold since the 17th Century.
Being strategically located close to the English / Welsh border, it has acquired a wealth of history, and indeed the High Street was once home to a motte and bailey Norman Castle. Mold is also the original home of the Bronze Age Gold Cape, a unique and fantastic piece of prehistoric metalwork, estimated around 2000 BC, found on a skeleton in fields nearby and now proudly exhibited centre stage in the British Museum in London. Mold Library displays a copy of the Gold Cape and many other Bronze Age treasures. ....
