Travelling around Mold
If you’re visiting North Wales, make sure you stop by the delightfully quaint, yet beautiful Mold. Part of Flintshire, the town can be found in the North Wales Borderlands, sitting on the River Alyn.
Public transport in the area is easily accessible. Arriva bus services operate regularly, taking you to and from places like Wrexham, Chester and Ellesmere Port.
Developed around Mold Castle, this motte-and-bailey structure was constructed around 1072. Thought to have been built by Robert de Montalt, under the instructions of the Earl of Chester, little remains of the castle today. The castle site now features a memorial to those that fell during World War One.
Mold has a long history and the most notable discovery made in the area was the Mold Cape. This is a gold-sheet object dating from around 1900 – 1600BC in the European Bronze Age. It was found in Mold in 1833 and is now housed in the British Museum.
