The Clwyd, Denbighshire

Historical Description

Clwyd, The, a river of Denbighshire. It rises on Bron-banog Mountain, 7 miles NW of Corwen, makes a semicircular sweep of about 12 miles southward, eastward, and northward, to Ruthin, and then goes about 19 miles north-north-westward, past Llanynys, St Asaph, and Rhuddlan, to the sea at Rhyl. Its course from above Ruthin lies along a fertile, beautiful, romantic vale, celebrated by artists. A branch of the L. & N.W.R. runs beside the river for the greater part of its course.
