Griff Rhys Jones visits Greenfield, Flintshire

POPULAR Welsh actor and presenter Griff Rhys Jones filmed part of his new television series in Greenfield and Holywell this week.

As part of his series on walking tours in Wales, Griff arrived at Greenfield Docks by boat yesterday morning, before visiting Basingwerk Abbey and St Winefride’s Well.

Holywell town centre manager Medwyn Roberts said: “Griff’s focusing this bit of the programme on the All Wales Coastal Path, which begins in Flintshire, and the North Wales Pilgrims’ Way, which begins in Basingwerk Abbey in Greenfield Valley.

“One of the fishermen in Greenfield will bring him in, then for part of the walk he will dress up as a monk.”

Mr Roberts added: “I’m really pleased they’re filming in the area as it’s going to raise the profile of Holywell as well as the Coastal Path and Pilgrims’ Way.

“It’s excellent news for the town.”
