Welcome to Chirk and the Ceiriog Valley

The River Ceiriog

Icon river

The River Ceiriog flows from the Berwyn Mountains for 18 miles to where it joins the River Dee near Chirk. In that short distance the landscape ranges from remote upland moorland to lush riverside meadows and steep wooded slopes; craggy cliffs and green patchwork hills.

Historic Sites
