Isycoed (Welsh: Is-coed) is a local government community in Wrexham County Borough, Wales.

It lies around 5 miles to the east of Wrexham on the border with England.

There is a primary school in Bowling Bank, and a late-Georgian church, dedicated to St. Paul, in Isycoed village.[1]

Governance[edit]

The area was traditionally considered part of the parish of Holt, but was made a separate parish in 1827, incorporating the townships of Cacca Dutton, Dutton Diffaeth, Dutton y Bran, Ridley, and Sutton.[1] The civil parish, established in 1935, was replaced by the Community of Isycoed under the Local Government Act 1972. It is governed by Isycoed Community Council.

The community today contains the villages or hamlets of Isycoed, Bowling Bank, and Ridleywood; part of the Wrexham Industrial Estate occupies the western side of the community area. At the time of the 2001 census, the population was 348.[2]
