Gresford, Wrexham County
Picture of Gresford
Gresford is a village in Wrexham County, North East Wales, situated between the town of Wrexham to the south and the English city of Chester to the north. Gresford has a rich heritage which was dominated by the coal mining industry during the late 19th and early 20th Century.
It could be argued that the village is most well known for its association with the coal mining industry, and particularly the Gresford Mine Disaster of 1934 in which 266 men died. The bodies of the miners were never recovered and the head gear wheel is preserved as part of the Gresford Disaster Memorial.
On a happier note the village is also renowned for the magnificent Church of All Saints, which sits on the edge of the village close to the banks of the River Alyn. The chime of the church bells have long been known as one of the Seven Wonders of Wales and it is a mystery to this day why such a magnificent church, built in the late 15th Century, should be located in such a tiny rural settlement. In the 21st Century Gresford is a pleasant suburb of the town of Wrexham and boasts a picturesque duck pond and several attractive public houses.
