Aberwheeler is a village and parish in Denbighshire, four miles north-east of the county town, Denbigh. The parish is situated in a protrusion of Denbighshire into Flintshire on the south bank of the River Wheeler which here forms the county border. At the 2001 census the parish had a population of 327.[1]

In the east of the parish, the land climbs steeply to the 1,306-ft-high summit of Moel y Parc on the border with Flintshire, where there is a cairn and tumulus. The Offa's Dyke Path, 176 miles long, which runs from Sedbury, in Gloucestershire, to Prestatyn, descends through the parish from the heights of the Clwydian Range to cross the River Wheeler into Bodfari in Flintshire. Further north, on the banks of the river, stands Candy Mill, a clover mill built to extract clover seed.[2][3] The mill is Grade-II* listed, while Aberwheeler House and Castell Bach are Grade-II listed.[4][5]
