Caergwrle, Flintshire
Caergwrle is a village situated in Flintshire, North Wales. It is bordered by Hope to the north, Cefn-y-Bedd and Sydallt to the south, Llanfynydd to the south west and Burton to the east. Nearby towns and villages include Llay, Brymbo, Gwersyllt, Broughton, Buckley, Rossett, Mold and Chester.
Caergwrle Castle was constructed in 1277 and was the final castle to be built by Welsh rulers before the loss of Welsh independence in 1283. The land was given as a gift to Dafydd ap Gruffydd from Edward I for his service in the Welsh war. However, in 1282 Dafydd revolted against the crown and had left Caergwrle by the time Edward came to invade it. Having been slighted, the king rebuilt the castle and gave it to his wife Eleanor of Castile. Its end came in 1283, when it was destroyed by fire.
Caergwrle Methodist Church is an attractive red bricking building, consisting of a battlemented tower with short steeple, and a beautiful stained glass window behind the altar.
