Bontuchel

Blink and you will miss this extraordinarily beautiful hamlet as you drive through on the Ruthin road, so don't blink.  A peaceful, secluded hamlet, park up safely and have a wander.  It will be well worth your while.   Bontuchel was also the home of  Gladys Williamson, an artist who was known for her art deco works used in advertising  during the 1920 and 1930s.   Ruthin born, she settled in Bontuchel after the Second World War with her husband, and remained for the rest of her life, dying virtually unknown as an artist, but loved by her community, in 2007.  The name of the hamlet takes its name, unsurprisingly from the bridge that rather dominates the place.
