Gwerclas Hall is situated approximately 1.5 km north-west of Cynwyd village. The present grade II* listed building dates mainly to 1767 and was built for Hugh Hughes Lloyd, replacing a house that had stood on the site for several hundred years. It was constructed in three storeys with a three bay frontage and a central pedimented porch entrance.[3] The Gwerclas estate became part of the Rhug estate in 1824 on the death of Richard Hughes until it was sold in 1972.

Cynwyd railway station was formerly a station on the Ruabon to Barmouth line; it closed to passengers on 18 January 1965.
