About Holt Print

Holt is a small village situated in North East Wales, part of the Welsh Marches, and sits on the banks of the River Dee. The Dee at this point marks the boundary between Wales and England and Holt Bridge was an important border crossing for centuries.

In 1282 Holt (also known as Villa Leonis or Lyons) was founded as an English town when lands were granted to John de Warrenne who built Holt Castle following the failed rebellion of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd.

Over the years, history has left its mark on the village in many forms including holes in the door of St. Chad's Church, caused by musket shot during the English Civil War.
