Folklore and furnishings

Folklore and furnishings


Many of the collection of objects and furnishings in the castle have travelled from around the world. Trade routes (often defined by the Myddelton family's business connections) carried stories and ideas – sometimes half-remembered, altered and reshaped.

A self-guided tour of some of the lesser known objects of the Chirk Castle collection to discover many interesting stories, designs, and the influence of folklore from around the world.
