Ruthin is the county town of Denbighshire in north Wales. Located around a hill in the southern part of the Vale of Clwyd, the castle and Saint Peter's Square are located on top of the hill, while many newer parts of the town are on the floodplain of the River Clwyd. Ruthin also has villages on the outskirts of the town such as Pwllglas and Rhewl.
The name 'Ruthin' comes from the Welsh words rhudd (red) and din (fort), and refers to the colour of the new red sandstone which forms the geologic basis of the area, and from which the castle was constructed in 1277-1284. The original name of Rhuthun was 'Castell Coch yng Ngwern-fôr' (red castle in the sea-swamps).
