Wrexham is a busy market town, the largest in North Wales, situated close to the Welsh borders with Shropshire and Cheshire. The town situated to the North of both the Clywedog Valley and the Ceiriog Valley, both of which offer picturesque and tranquil views of the Welsh Hills. The Clywedog Valley is home to a number of visitor centres including Minera Lead Mines, Nant Mill, Bersham Iron Works and Kings Mill. All of these industries were reliant on the River Clywedog for their operation, and the centres now tell the story of their past lives.

Also, the All Saints Church, Gresford, whose famous bells may be heard ringing out on Tuesday evenings, and Sundays. The town is also home to a large number of male voice choirs.
