History of the Beeches
In the leafy village of Gresford near Wrexham, the Welsh and English dispute the origins of the name.
To the Welsh it’s a crossroads, to the English it’s a grassy ford. Whatever way you see it, you’re more than welcome in the village.
Digging up the past
Did you know The Beeches was once the home of a local colliery manager? The area was famous for coal production because of its good quality and high burning temperature. Our old resident Henry Dennis and his son completed their mine in 1911 and coal production began in June of the same year, fuelling many a fireplace.
