 Dolbelydr, a fine example of a 16th-century gentry house, has good claim to be the birthplace of modern Welsh - it was here that Henry Salesbury wrote his Grammatica Britannica, the first Welsh grammar.

These free open days will be an opportunity to see inside this important local landmark and learn more about its history and restoration.

Booking via Eventbrite is advisable.

Free Admission and leaflets on the building's history. Click here for location 

Dolbelydr can be a little tricky to find - please follow these directions and look out for open day signage:

Just after entering the outskirts of St Asaph, turn left at the mini roundabout (by the Cathedral) and continue on the A525 to Trefnant. At the traffic lights in Trefnant village turn right on to the B5428 signposted Henllan.

(If travelling from Denbigh on the A525 turn left at the traffic lights in Trefnant village on to the B5428)

Follow the B5428 road over a small crossroads and continue for about another half mile. On the left is a gateway and a small lodge and immediately after, on the right, is the entrance to Bryn Wgan Farm (a BRYN WGAN sign is attached to the right gate pillar of the entrance).

Turn right down this private lane and follow it until just before you reach the farmyard. The access track to Dolbelydr is through the gate on your right opposite a large oak tree.

For further information please contact Booking Enquiries. The Booking Office is open Mon to Fri - 9am to 5.30pm.
