Exciting Bailey Hill, Mold, plans revealed

Bailey Hill can be found at the heart of the historic market town of Mold. At its core is the remains of an extensive 11th Century Motte and Bailey Castle. The site is unusual having two Baileys, which is unique in Flintshire. Other notable features include an early custodian’s cottage, a cenotaph and a Gorsedd stone circle erected in 1922/3 for the proclamation of the National Eisteddfod.

Last summer Flintshire County Council in partnership with Mold Town Council and the Friends of Bailey Hill received a Heritage Lottery Fund Parks for People award to improve this important public park. During this development phase further consultation has led to plans being produced and costed, which are now available to view in Mold Town Hall.
