Caerwys’ ground is situated in the southwestern corner of the small town, directly next to the local primary school, and a very short walk away from Saint Michael’s Church. There is no car parking at the ground although on-road parking is available near the ground.
It is not an easy location to reach via public transport with no bus services directly from Holywell to Caerwys. However, the small town can be reached from Mold Bus Station via the 14 (Mold to Denbigh) P&O Lloyd bus service which stops at Caerwys Square in the centre of town on the B5122 road. The ground is then just a five-minute walk from the bus stop down the High Street, Penycefn Road, and then Lon Yr Ysgol roads.
The ground serves hot drinks and cold snacks via its snatch hatch at its pavilion, although it has no clubhouse onsite. There are a couple of pubs in Caerwys for pre/post-match drinks. Firstly, there is the Piccadilly Inn gastropub, that is just a short walking distance away from the bus stop down the B5122 towards the A55 Expressway, although it is currently closed for long-term refurbishment. Thankfully, there is also the Royal Oak pub, which is a very short walk from the Caerwys Square bus stop down Water Street, and this is currently the only pub open in the small town at the time of writing.
The majority of Caerwys’ history has been playing football within the local leagues, as well as being very successful in the Llandyrnog & District Summer League. However a senior winter side appeared in 1983 within the Clwyd League system, and throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the side slowly rose through the leagues. They finally gained promotion to the Welsh Alliance League in the 1999-2000 season, after finishing as runners-up in the Clwyd League Premier Division and missing out on the title by goal difference.
They played in the Welsh Alliance League for seven seasons (finishing no higher than eleventh) until they had to resign from the league in 2008 due to the financial strain of running a team in the third tier. Since then, they have competed in the lower tiers of Welsh football, firstly back in the Clwyd League system before transferring over to the North East Wales League. They currently play in the fifth-tier North East Wales League Championship and have played at that level in the Welsh football pyramid since returning to the league in 2016-17.
