Flintshire Record Office has released four new colour prints for sale in time for Christmas. The prints, taken from images in the archives collection, include line engravings of Northop Church and Overton Church near Wrexham from 1831, Rhuddlan Castle in 1830 and a 17th century colour map of Denbigh and Flintshire in Latin and Welsh, showing woods, rivers, parks and Offa’s Dyke. Principal Archivist, Claire Harrington, said: “We’re delighted to release these for sale to the public. They are high quality prints, which have remained true to the original and would make a lovely Christmas present.” The prints cost £5 for an A4 size and £20 for a larger A3. All four can be viewed on the Record Office flickr page and are also on display in the foyer of the Record Office in Hawarden. Cllr Chris Bithell, Lead Member for Education said: “Staff at The Record Office have once again shown their entrepreneurial streak and produced four stunning prints that are unusual and I’m sure will appeal to many people especially those with an interest in the history of the local area.” The Record Office are now working on producing a set of Victorian Christmas cards that will be released for sale next month.
