History of Nantclwyd Dre
This black and white house is a remarkable survivor from the decades when Ruthin, like many other Welsh towns, was rebuilt after the destruction wrought by the army of Welsh rebel Owain Glyndŵr. Timbers in the house’s earliest part have been carbon-dated to 1435 or 1436. The house’s land belonged to weaver Goronwy ap Madog and his English wife, Suzanna. Ruthin was a thriving centre for weaving.
In medieval times, one of the house’s residents made a pilgrimage to Rome – recorded in a document uncovered during restoration works.
Nantclwyd y Dre was probably bestowed on the property in the 1720s. It was home to many influential people over the centuries. From 1834 to 1970, judges lodged here when sitting at the Ruthin assizes. In the late 19th century, it was also home to a girls’ school.
In 1925 retired civil engineer Clinton Holme bought the house, where he was already the tenant. He removed the exterior render to expose the timber frames in 1928. The next owner, Samuel Dyer Gough, continued the restoration. His widow sold the house to Clwyd County Council in 1984.
Since 2007 the house has been a museum with rooms fitted out to show how different owners would have lived over the centuries.
The gardens behind the house are even older than the house itself! They were given, with Ruthin Castle, in the 1280s to Reginald de Grey as a reward for helping to suppress a rebellion by Prince Llywelyn ap Gruffydd. The gardens supplied fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs to the castle.
In 2016 the Grade II-listed gardens reopened after a £220,000 restoration, thanks to work and funding by the Friends of Nantclwyd y Dre, Denbighshire County Council, Ruthin Town Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
