Caergwrle is a village in the county of Flintshire, in north east Wales. It is on the A541 road, is approximately 5-6 miles from Wrexham, and is contiguous with the village of Abermorddu. The village also sits at the base of Hope Mountain.
Caergwrle lies on the River Alyn and has a 13th-century ruined castle first built by Dafydd ap Gruffydd, in lands given to him by Edward I after the first Welsh campaign of 1277. The 17th century Packhorse Bridge, which is reputed to be haunted, was nearly destroyed by flooding in 2000, though it has since been restored.
Caergwrle is closely related to the village of Hope and has a station on the Borderlands Line, connecting it to Wrexham and Liverpool. Bus links also give access to Mold and Chester.
