Ruthin is a small but very pleasant market town in North Wales. Unusually for a Welsh town many of the buildings are half timbered and the usual materials of slate and stone are not so prominent.
The town is built on a hilltop and the way out is down regardless of the direction you take.
A once prosperous town on the drovers route, Ruthin is now something of a sleepy backwater and worth stopping for a look and a spot of lunch if you are in the area.
"The rolling Clwyd hills"
Ruthin sits on hilltop but is itself surrounded by the Clwyd hills that are popular with walkers and cyclists alike.
"St Peter's Square"
The centre of the town is around the pretty St Peter's square where there are some fine buildings and an unusual little clock tower.
