TREVOR ARMS HOTEL
Marford Village, Wrexham, Clwyd, North Wales

 

Marford is an amazing village full of buildings that ooze character and the odd thing is that most of the buildings, including the Trevor Arms Hotel which dates back to the early 1800's, feature a cross or crosses which are intended to ward off evil spirits. In fact the Trevor Arms Hotel has 4 or 5 of these set into its structure. The story relates that following a battle in Paris between Catholics and Protestants in the late 1700's, which the Catholics won, the Protestants made their escape up the River Seine and eventually, via the River Dee, landed at Ecclestone Ferry nearby.Marford Village is built in a Dutch style, with a place in Holland believed to be identical. There is little doubt that the buildings and their unusual architecture - with even more striking windows and strange crosses - are the work of these Europeans.
