The village of Dyserth lies below the slopes of Moel Hiraddug – designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1985. Its wildflower spaces harbour such rarities as white violets and orchids while overhead you may see buzzards wheeling and, if you are very lucky, peregrine falcons. The village is renowned for its spectacular waterfall which cascades seventy feet from the River Ffyddion over a limestone cliff on the slopes of Moel Hiraddug in the centre of the village near the church. Evidence of the rich history of Dyserth village ranges from the Iron Age to the Industrial Revolution; and the village event gets a mention in the Doomsday Book.
The reorganisation of local government in 1974 saw the end in Wales of Parish Councils and the emergence of new bodies – Town and Community Councils. The first meeting of the newly formed Dyserth Community Council, was held in April 1974. Please view the various pages of this web site – for further information in relation to the work carried out by the Council, together with Councillor and Clerk details.
