"Take a walk on the banks of the River Alyn from Bradley to Llay today and you will see few glimpses of its former glory. The signs of long ago activities are now silent and haunting. Gone are the wheels that drove the mill machines and many of the buildings that housed those machines. Gone also are the people that lived on the river's edge, built the Bronze Age barrows and the Iron Age hillfort, Watts Dyke, St. Leonard's Chapel and those that cleared the woodland, lived in the country estates and worked the mills. If only the landscape could talk, what a tale it would tell. Well if you look carefully are the landscape it can!

The Caer Alyn Archaeological and Heritage Project




Introduction


The Caer Alyn Archaeological & Heritage Project began in 2004. The CAAHP team is made up of both professionals and volunteers, and the main aim of the project is to survey and protect the Caer Alyn promontory fort, near the village of Llay in Denbighshire, and fully investigate the landscape that surrounds it. We are very fortunate to have received Heritage Lottery Funding this year to help us pursue the project’s aims, and we have also received invaluable support from local landowners over recent years.

The Project aims to bring the past of the community to life:-

"Take a walk on the banks of the River Alyn from Bradley to Llay today and you will
see few glimpses of its former glory. The signs of long ago activities are now silent
and haunting. Gone are the wheels that drove the mill machines and many of the
buildings that housed those machines. Gone also are the people that lived on the
river’s edge, built the Bronze Age barrows and the Iron Age hillfort, Watts Dyke, St.
Leonard’s Chapel and those that cleared the woodland, lived in the country estates
and worked the mills. If only the landscape could talk, what a tale it would tell. Well if
you look carefully are the landscape – it can?

The River Alyn has been the lifeblood for communities over many years. Along its
banks peoples have lived, worked and died; from it’s birth in the hills of North East Wales
to it’s entry into the River Dee, the River Alyn has provided those communities with
employment, transport, communication, food and defence.

The area has long since reverted back to it’s natural being – a sleepy backwater with
only slight traces of human activity and occupation. The Caer Alyn Archaeological &
Heritage Project has called upon the many years of work by local people who have given
their time and knowledge freely. We hope we can do them justice and that our work at
Caer Alyn will provide new knowledge and understanding of the area and provide local
communities with the history of their own back yard".
