While Denbighshire includes the industrial
and mining areas around Wrexham and some of the popular coastal resorts
area, many of the towns and villages are dispersed among the gentle river
valleys such as the Clwyd and the more dramatic Berwyn range round Llangollen.
This is reflected in the dispersal of the drill halls, where some are small
and insignificant, such as Ruthin; and some are proudly idiosyncratic large
premises such as Denbigh. Both are still a part of their community.
Within the industrial area itself, many drill halls seem to have fallen
victim to later twentieth century development.
