Treuddyn is a small village and parish in Flintshire, located just off the A5104 road, around four miles south-east of Mold and three miles north-west of Caergwrle. The parish includes the nearby village of Coed Talon, to the east, and Rhydtalog, to the south-west on the Denbighshire border. The parish's population was 1,567 during the 2001 Census.[1]

There are two primary schools: Ysgol Parc y Llan and Ysgol Terrig; the latter of which is a Welsh-medium school. The closest secondary schools are and Alun School and Ysgol Maes Garmon in Mold, 4½ miles away. There is also a Post Office and shop.

Treuddyn has its own church, St Mary's, and there are also two active chapels in the village. A third chapel, that of the Baptist denomination, has closed. There are many Bronze Age cairns in the area. It was an industrial area during the 19th and 20th centuries, with mining of coal, iron and lead. There was a distillery to extract oil from the coal, and a blast furnace between 1817 and 1865. In 1834 around 450 men were constantly employed in the collieries and other industries.[2]
