Rhosesmor  Flintshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Rhosesmor like this:

CAER-FALLWCH, or Caerallwch, a township in Northop parish, Flintshire; 3¼ miles S by E of Flint. Real property, £9,581; of which £6,646 are in mines. Pop., 925. Houses, 195. Some of the inhabitants are employed in lead mines. An ancient British camp here, called Moel-Gaer, encloses a circular area of 196 yards in diameter; has an artificial mound in the centre; commands a very extensive view; is one of the most perfect ancient strengths in North Wales; and is thought to have been an outpost of the Ordivices for defence against the Romans.
