The Essential
The largest town in North Wales, Wrexham's prosperity stems from its position between prolific coal seams and rich farmland. The fine St Giles Church is in the Perpendicular style, the last, longest and most original of the phases of English Gothic (broad arches and huge windows as in Cambridge). It has the Memorial Chapel of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, and its churchyard contains the grave of Elihu Yale (1649-1721), the tireless traveller after whom the famous American university is named.
