History of the Society

During 2008/09 a group of residents came together to participate in the production of ‘Discover Caerwys’, one of a set of publications about Flintshire past and present, produced by Cadwyn Clwyd and Flintshire County Council. This group also attracted funding from Cadwyn Clwyd and Caerwys Town Council in 2010 to produce a book, ‘Caerwys – A History Since Victorian Times’ written by Dr Tim Erasmus. A copy of this book was distributed free to each household in the Community area of Caerwys. The book was also donated to Libraries, Schools and Universities in Wales.

Further copies of the book, ‘Caerwys – A History Since Victorian Times’ (pictured below) are available from the Society. It will be priced at £10.00 a copy ( Plus postage cost, if required – £2.00 ).

In October 2010 the Caerwys Historical Society was formed. Permission was granted by the Caerwys Town Council to use the Town Crest which appears on our documents. Our Constitution, which is reviewed at the yearly Annual General Meeting of the Society, states: the aim of the Society is to advance public knowledge in all aspects of the history of Caerwys and the surrounding district. In furtherance of this object the Society shall have the power to do all or any of the following:
Organise lectures, meetings, excursions and exhibitions
Produce publications
Provide an archive of historical material for public consultation
Co-operate and foster good relations with other organisations having related interests
Raise funds in furtherance of the aims of the Society
