Erddig Hall

Again Erddig Hall is not in Rhostyllen but who from the “Village” has not walked or played in the fields and park land that surround it at one time or another?

Erddig Hall is now a National Trust property and was built in 1684–1687 for Joshua Edisbury, the High Sheriff of Denbighshire; it was designed in 1683 by Thomas Webb (1699), 'freemason', of Middlewich, Cheshire.

Erddig is one of the country's finest stately homes. In 2003 it was voted by readers of the Radio Times and viewers of the Channel 5 television series "Britain's Finest Stately Homes" as "Britain's second finest".
