About Us

Leeswood is a small village and community in Flintshire, North Wales, about four miles from the historic market town of Mold. At the 2011 Census, the population was 1756 plus 345 in Pontblyddyn. It was the centre of attention during the Mold Riot of 1869, where the owners of the  mine refused to allow the speaking of the Welsh language in the mines.

Land Mark

The other land mark which puts Leeswood on the map is down to the 18th Century Leeswood Hall White Gates, which are Grade I listed. Leeswood is steeped with industrial heritage, which is very easy to spot on walking around the community. From mining, brick works, metal works, railway and breweries the community had it all. This website will provide a sustainable resource for all the community, connecting the past with the present. It is partly funded through the Rural Development Plan, which is financed through the European Union and Welsh Assembly Government.
