Have you wondered through North East Wales and stopped in one of our market towns and thought…..I wish i knew more about this town or landmark? Cadwyn Clwyd, along with local authorities in North East Wales, have pooled together to develop the North East Wales app that is packed full of information about designated areas within our corner of North Wales.
(You can also download the app from the iStore, just search North East Wales)
This app is designed to help you discover some of the hidden treasures of this fascinating part of Wales, covering Ceiriog Valley, Point of Ayr, Holywell, Mold, St. Asaph, Brynford, Rhuddlan, Corwen, Llangollen, Chirk, Holt and Cefn Mawr. With more local community groups looking to join the app then it is looking to grow and offer more information on the landscape and heritage.
Communities across Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham have developed their own digital trails to encourage local people and visitors alike to explore the local area and find out more about their heritage. Also following fantastic buy in from local community groups the digital trails have been created and offer a really in depth guide into the history and landscape of each individual community.
The app makes use of beacon technology to show relevant information that’s nearby when you’re exploring North East Wales. The app content is available in both Welsh and English.
This project has received funding from Cadwyn Clwyd under the LEADER scheme.

It is part of the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014 – 2020, which is financed by the Welsh Government and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
