Situated in an historic market town, it is named after a 4,000-year-old solid gold ceremonial cape found at a site near Mold in 1831. Made from a single sheet beaten gold, embellished with intense decoration, the original is restored and is in the British Museum London as possibly the best example of prehistoric craftsmanship in Europe. There is a copy in Mold Library, there are depictions of Mold’s past on the walls, including local poet Daniel Owen also the Gold Cape.
