RN #166 Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd

On the road to Wrexham and Llangollen is the parish of Llanfair - Dyffryn Clwyd.  This parish was the home of many in my Welsh family tree.   It lies 2 miles south of Ruthin, surrounded by a number of limestone hills.   In the Welsh it was knows as " y berfedowlad" or the "middle country".
