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 from Holywell to Caerwys. However the town can be reached via the Mold to Denbigh bus service (14) which stops at Caerwys Square in the centre of town. The ground is then just a five minute walk from the bus stop.
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 within Caerwys however, with the Royal Oak and the Piccadilly Inn just short walking distances away from the bus stop.
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.
