Llanrwst

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  Wales  /  North Wales  /  Conwy County  /  Llanrwst
Llanrwst is a small market town and community on the A470 road and the River Conwy, in Conwy County Borough, Wales. The town developed around the wool trade, but also became renowned for harp and clock manufacture. Today, lying on the edge of Snowdonia (Snowdonia starts about 3/4 mile away on the other side of the river Conwy), its main industry is tourism. Notable buildings in Llanrwst include the almshouses, two 17th-century chapels and the Parish Church of St Grwst, which holds the stone coffin of Llywelyn the Great. In the 2011 census the population of the town was 3,323.HistoryThe site of the original church dedicated to St Grwst was Cae Llan in Llanrwst . The current church is on land which was donated in around 1170 by Rhun ap Nefydd Hardd, a member of the royal family of the Kingdom of Gwynedd, specifically to build a new church dedicated to Grwst.Llanrwst developed around the wool trade, and for a long time the price of wool for the whole of Britain was set here. The growth of the town in the 13th century was considerably aided by an edict by Edward I of England prohibiting any Welshman from trading within 10mi of the town of Conwy. Llanrwst, located some 13mi from that town, was strategically placed to benefit from this.
