Flint Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout North Wales...

Flint is situated on the estuary of the river Dee, and is home to the first castle to be built by Edward I as he advanced into Wales in the thirteenth century.

The castle is also of note as it is where Richard II was handed over to his enemy Henry Bollingbrooke in 1399 after returning from Ireland - a scene depicted by Shakespeare's play "Richard II".
