Hawarden

Hawarden  (listen) (Welsh: Penarlâg), Flintshire, Wales is a village and community (and electoral ward) in part of the Deeside conurbation on the Welsh/English border and was a strategic settlement, see Hawarden Castle. At the 2011 Census, the population of its eponymous ward, as modified, in local representation of the people was 1,887, an increase of 29 in ten years. The total population for the greater community of Hawarden, which takes in Ewloe (which also has a castle), Mancot and Aston was 13,920 at the 2011 census, an increase of 381 in that period. The scenic, wooded Hawarden Park abuts the clustered settlement in the south. Hawarden Bridge constitutes distribution and industrial business premises beyond Shotton/Queensferry and the Dee. The west of the main street is called The Highway, its start marked by the crossroads with a fountain in the middle, near which are public houses, some centred on restaurants.

The large village is 4 miles (6.4 km) west and north-west from England is centred 6.7 miles (10.8 km) from Chester. In 2014 it was named in The Sunday Times' annual Best Places To Live List.
