History of the Society
During 2008/09 a group of residents came together to participate
in the production of ‘Discover Caerwys’, one of a set of publications about Flintshire past and present, produced
by Cadwyn Clwyd and Flintshire County Council. This group also attracted funding from Cadwyn Clwyd and Caerwys Town Council
in 2010 to produce a book, ‘Caerwys – A History Since Victorian Times’ written by Dr Tim Erasmus. A copy
of this book was distributed free to each household in the Community area of Caerwys. The book was also donated to Libraries,
Schools and Universities in Wales.
of the book, ‘Caerwys – A History Since Victorian Times’ (pictured below) are available from
the Society. It will be priced at £10.00 a copy ( Plus postage cost, if required - £2.00 ).
In October 2010 the Caerwys Historical Society was formed. Permission
was granted by the Caerwys Town Council to use the Town Crest which appears on our documents. Our Constitution, accepted by
members in 2011, states the aim of the Society is to advance public knowledge in all aspects of the history of Caerwys and
the surrounding district. In furtherance of this object the Society shall have the power to do all or any of the following:
