Explore Ysceifiog

Have you wondered through North East Wales and stopped in one of our market towns and thought … “I wish I knew more about this town or landmark?

Cadwyn Clwyd, along with local authorities in North East Wales, have pooled together to develop the North East Wales app that is packed full of information about designated areas within our corner of North Wales.

This app is designed to help you discover some of the hidden treasures of this fascinating part of Wales, covering Ceiriog Valley, Point of Ayr, Holywell, Mold, St. Asaph, Brynford, Rhuddlan, Corwen, Llangollen, Chirk, Holt, Cefn Mawr … and now YSCEIFIOG!

The app makes use of beacon technology to show relevant information that’s nearby when you’re exploring North East Wales. In Ysceifiog, we have installed beacons at key points of interest on the three circular walks which begin and end at the red telephone box information point in the middle of the village:

With more local community groups looking to join the app then it is looking to grow and offer more information on the landscape and heritage. The app content is available in both Welsh and English.

This project has received funding from Cadwyn Clwyd under the LEADER scheme.  LEADER is a fund for rural areas in Wales to explore innovative new approaches and experimental technologies to tackle poverty, create jobs and drive sustainable economic development.  It is part of the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is financed by the Welsh Government and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
