HOLYWELL – the Lourdes of Wales and gateway to the Greenfield Valley

TREFFYNNON – Lourdes Cymru a’r porth i Ddyffryn Maesglas

Holywell

The market town of Holywell in Flintshire is home to St Winefride’s Holy Well with its reputed healing powers and which is one of the Seven Wonders of Wales. It is also located at the head of the Greenfield Valley; the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in North East Wales that is now a heritage and country park, and is also where the recently opened 61m (99km) Wat’s Dyke Heritage Trail ends. Mae tref farchnad Treffynnon yn Sir y Fflint yn gartref i ffynnon gysegredig y Santes Gwenfrewi, sydd gyda phwerau iachau tybiedig – ac sydd hefyd yn un o Saith Rhyfeddod Cymru. Yn ogystal, mae’r ffynnon wedi ei lleoli gerllaw Dyffryn Maesglas; magwrfa’r Chwyldro Diwydiannol yng ngogledd ddwyrain Cymru, sydd nawr yn barc treftadaeth gwledig. Yno hefyd mae’r Llwybr Treftadaeth Clawdd Wat 61 milltir (99km), a agorwyd yn ddiweddar, yn i.
Holywell is the gateway to some of the best countryside in North East Wales. This includes the 1,800 acre Halkyn Common and a network of public footpaths with views from some towards the nearby Clwydian hills and from others towards the estuary of the river Dee, most of which until now have remained largely unexplored except by local walking enthusiasts. Mae Treffynnon yn borth i rai o’r ardaloedd cefn gwlad gorau yng ngogledd ddwyrain Cymru. Ymgorffora hyn Gomin Helygain a rhwydwaith o lwybrau cyhoeddus – gyda golygfeydd o rai tuag at y Bryniau Clwyd cyfagos, ac o eraill tuag at aber yr Afon Ddyfrdwy. Hyn yn hyn, nid yw’r mwyafrif o’r rhain ond wedi cael eu harchwilio gan gerddwyr lleol brwd.
