The village of Dyserth lies below the slopes of Moel Hiraddug – designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1985. The name Dyserth has evolved from the original Dissard which means ‘hermit’s cell’ and was mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086. It has been a popular destination for visitors since the 18th century to take the fresh air, as it lies several hundred feet above sea level. It is famous for its spectacular waterfall which cascades for over 70 feet.
From its ancient pre-roman fort to its industrial heritage of quarries and mining, some of which only closed in the 1980s, there are remnants of previous dwellers dotted around the village and there are several interesting walks that will take you past all there is to explore in this long established community.
