WCBC-BERSHAM IRONWORKS.

Bersham Ironworks will be throwing its doors open in August for two days of magical family fun 🙂

Made famous by John ‘Iron Mad’ Wilkinson, a leading figure in the Industrial Revolution, the once noisy Bersham Ironworks now nestles quietly in the beautiful Clywedog Valley, just two miles outside Wrexham.
