Plas yn Dre
Plas yn Dre (centre of photograph) dominates High Street to this day. This was the building in which John Wynne established his Grammar School. According to Ken Davies in his book Trelawnyd Past & Present ,Wynne placed a land charge of £40 a year upon his own property to pay the schoolmaster and usher and to provide £1 a year to each of the 12 poor scholars who were to wear white linen coats. The schoolmaster was also requested to teach twenty boys from the parish free of charge. The first master of the school was a Mr Turner who was appointed in the 1690s
