The first documented record of Rhug, dates back to 1080, when Gruffydd ap Cynan, Prince of Gwynedd and Lord of Rhug, was imprisoned in Chester over a rivalry with Meirion Goch of Lleyn. Gruffydd’s daughter married Madog ap Maredudd, forming an alliance between Powys and Gwynedd. The borders of these counties, moved around with regular monotony until the creation of Merioneth in 1284 by the Statute of Rhuddlan.
The Rhug Estate, in Corwen, Denbighshire, strives towards a more sustainable future. His vision has seen the conversion of the farm to organic, the addition of a large portfolio of renewable energy projects, and continued support for local Welsh produce.
