Bronygarth is a village on the English - Welsh border in the county of Shropshire, England. The village lies in the Ceiriog Valley, once described by Lloyd George as “a little bit of heaven on earth.” The Ceiriog Valley is formed by the River Ceiriog which rises in the Berwyn Mountains at 1,800 feet and then descends over 18 miles to the east to converge with the River Dee. The Ceiriog Valley provides a varied and lush landscape with sheep and cattle grazing at the trout filled waters edge.
Bronygarth overlooks the magnificent marcher fortress of Chirk Castle which was completed in 1310 - the castle is the last Welsh castle from the reign of Edward I that is still lived in today. A medieval tower and dungeon are among the attractions on offer at this 700 year old National Trust building as well as a 17th century long gallery, grand 18th century state apartments, servants' hall and also historic laundry quarters.
Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities
Walkers will be spoilt for choice in Bronygarth. The village sits close to the historic Offa's Dyke, and no less than three important trails meet up in the village - the Ceiriog Trail, The Maelor Way, and the Offa's Dyke Path.
The longest trail, the Offa's Dyke Path is one of the most attractive and varied National Trails, and the route passes across wide river valleys, ancient woodland and high wild moorland. Hill forts, castles, abbeys and habitation remains can be seen as well as beautiful and contrasting scenery.
Snowdonia and the North Shropshire Lakes are also easily accessible from Bronygarth, and the picturesque Shropshire Union Canal is within one mile of the village.
