    Ha! Heard it called the Library Field and Hosptial Field before now.

    Oddly enough on all three you do get the odd ‘wheres that then?’

    And me. If we don’t call places by their rightful names now they will be lost in the mists of time

    Does Llwyn Isaf translate into Lower Grove? I am not a Welsh speaker so apologies if my memory serves me wrong.

    WCBC: Wrexham Town Walk : Llwyn Isaf

    This might explain the hospital bit:

    “Originally there was a house on this site known as Ypsytty Ucha (Upper Hospital) – a name hinting at perhaps a past connected to friars or monks. In the 19th Century the house was called Llwyn Isaf and became home to the vicars of Wrexham.”

    The town walk looks interesting. I am going to print it out and follow it when we have the next dry day and I am not working.

    It has always been called Llwyn Isaf. This is the first time I’ve heard it called ‘Hospital Field’ but this may be a reference to the old War Memorial Hospital which occupied the site of the college. I believe the ‘Library Field’ reference is commonly used amongst the student population.

    Is there a name plaque on the field? I walk through it but haven’t noticed if there is or isn’t. If not there should be otherwise a whole generation might not realise it is named already.

    It was known as The Library Field when I was a kid. Its official name is Llwyn Isaf, it’s local name is The Library Field… never heard it called The Hospital Field though.
