    Wow, is the only expression on viewing this master-piece of engineering. We visited on a day when the weather was perfect and walking across the aqueduct was a truly breathtaking experience, made even better because I could walk faster than the narrow boat that was crossing it at the time. If you are in the area don't miss it.

    We enjoyed our 4 hour visit to Erddig, not having been there for many years. We started with a lovely walk around part of the estate, the house not being open until 12.00. The green marked trail takes the visitor through meadows and fields, along a pretty stream and back to the house. Most enjoyable! We next had tea and cakes in the tea garden which was a lovely peaceful spot. We spent a long tome in the house. There is so much of interest to see ranging from the old photos of staff accompanied by the charming poems written by the Yorke family, all sorts of curiosities which were modern in their day. (Early shower, stereoscope, children's toys, for example.) The room guides were all most helpful and amusing and each area has an informative little folder of facts to add to one's enjoyment. After this a pleasant wander around the formal gardens rounded off our visit nicely!

    St Giles Parish Church is absolutely stunning! Wherever I go in the world I like to light a candle for my parents, it's such a great comfort. We got to speak to the Vicar too which is always nice, he told us such a funny story but I wont repeat it on here.

    Great little local museum. We haven't been to Wrexham before so it was a good introduction to the area. The small café in the courtyard offered quality Welsh products. Staff was friendly and there was also a souvenir shop. Interesting to know about the famouse local lager, the football club & the mining history. Good morning stop before attending the St David's parade.

    I have to give a 4 rating. The main reason, well it’s something that will cost an awful lot to rectify!
    It took me back to the days at Southwell back in the seventies, basically watching the race head on.
    If it wasn’t for modern day technology, so we can now watch the side on finish, I feel unscrupulous things could happen!!

    We stopped by to sit and have our sandwiches and found the park to be very pleasant. Plenty of benches and picnic tables to sit at. There appeared to be a treasure hunt taking place organised by the local community, children having fun, dogs being walked and lots of anglers by the lake.

    Was staying locally. Visited a few areas to walk but found this treasure. Old quarry and lots of paths and wooded areas to get lost and enjoy some views and wildlife.

    Visited this lovely retail village to browse the shops, wanted to get a ring restyled but the jewellers was closed. We had a light lunch in the coffee shop, see photos, the food was delish. Nice place, service was quick and friendly. Will return again when the jewellers is open.

    Ty-Pawb is starting to show all the naysayers and gloomy dweebs how wrong they were.
    In the few years since it became as it is Ty-Pawb is becoming quite a nice little hub, the layout begs interaction with a large "food court" area that doesn't interfere with the stalls or the gallery, the layout works so well.
    The foods on offer are good, reasonably priced fare. The gallery is a lovely space and there have been some really excellent exhibitions, a lovely wander, whether killing time or taking a real long look.
    Stores are by and large staffed by friendly people, my personal favourite is ReVibed Records, I'm sure there are things you could enjoy too, from comic books to crafts, get your nails done, buy a buggy, grab a beer...
    ...They also put films on for the kids....and last night I attended a very lively and very fun Psy-Trance Rave, which is probably the very last thing I would expect...and what a fun venue for such a party, more of this, please!
    In short, Ty-Pawb is becoming a community space which is exactly what this world needs more of...and guess what? No billboards trying to flog you some crud, no vile-smelling "subway sandwiches" stinking it up, ...and DJ carpets are still there (you can have this one for free: "Ty-Pawb, make a quilt in our community area, buy a carpet from DJ's Carpets and cut a rug in the evening, we have it all")...and don';t forget to cop a lovely picture of one of the most fantastic and beautiful objects ever made: The chandelier from the old cinema, a work of sheer eyewatering loveliness......

    Wrecsam is changing, the weirdos with the money thought they could make money and change Wrecsam by plonking a hideous modern monstrosity that now has over half of its space sitting empty and unused... because the real changes come from the people, the people who came up with the concept of Ty-Pawb and the people who use it to sell their wares and those who use it to buy and create good times, good things and good vibrations. We need fewer Eagles Medows (how ironic its name now must seem for such a lame-duck) and more Ty-Pawbs in this country......come and visit and then go back to where you came from and pester your council and your community into getting something similar, I have to admit IO wondered whether anything would come of this, but something has or at least the beginnings of something, something good... I mean this is a space in which I can eat a snack, buy somestuff, check out some art, buy my daughter some wool, use clean toilets...and I can rave their with a bunch of youngsters, rave vetrens and old ladies on their scooters! Proper.

    We’ve been here once before as a family a few years ago. It’s a nice size and the paths clear and tidy. Loads and loads of grey squirrels who seem to be used to people feeding them. They’re pretty cute and peep at you around the trees. With hindsight it would have been good to bring some bird food. We walked up to the top by Tenter’s Square and saw the ventilator pipes sticking out of the ground. That made for some googling but the answer wasn’t there. Same for why ‘Tenter’s Square’ ?

    The answers seem to be that’s where the old Bridewell was and where linen and wool cloth was hung out to dry like tents over a line. The ventilation pipes could be to vent methane but there was no mention of why they’re there. Same with other historical facts like the parks’ role in WW2.

    The park obviously attracts young folk and it seemed all well behaved although some articles online refer to unsavoury behaviour and drug taking and claims that the pay to use toilets were used for that purpose. We saw nothing untoward happening at all.

    We parked in the road along the top side opposite the garage. No restrictions there. After the first walk we went into town and had lunch then bought a basket ball so we could get back to the park and use a basket ball hoop in one of the enclosed areas.

    There were dog walkers but no sign of any dog poo being left.

    The bandstand is an interesting feature and they have music played live during the season which must be nice. Lots of space to sit and picnic.

    Overall a very nice park and an oasis away from the busy town.

    Lovely area for a walk for anyone. Note though if you walk on the adjacent golf course you are likely to have some jobsworth telling you to keep to the edge. Perhaps understandable now it has opened but did they really think we were going to walk over the greens while it was closed/
