Bettisfield used to be a thriving village with shop, pub,school and railway station but in the 1960s the school and railway closed and it wasn’t long before they were followed bu the pub and shop.  Now it is a pleasant hamlet surrounded by fields and bisected by the Llangollen canal.  At the present time (2018) there are about  150 dwellings and a population of 400 .  The main landmarks are St John the Baptist Church, and Bettisfield Windmill.
