RHUTHUN LOCAL HISTORY BROADSHEET

This  was published quarterly by the Coelion Trust and edited by A, Fletcher, P. Randall, and D. Williams, from Plas Tirion, Well Street, Ruthin, between 1985 and 2002, amounting to some 70 editions.

The Local History Society, in trying to save these articles for posterity, intends to upload the entire output to this site, as far as technology will permit. Articles will be published as they were written, though the font and layout will be altered to suit the website. This means that some articles contain information which is now thought to be incorrect, but out of respect to the authors these are left as they were written.

Articles will be added gradually as they become available. Those we now have are shown on the list below.
