Saltney

the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

Saltney is a small town on the England–Wales border with the west part lying in Flintshire and the eastern part in Cheshire, England. It is part of the Deeside conurbation of towns that lie near the River Dee.

Higher Saltney, more commonly known by local people as "Top Saltney" (part of the area known locally as Saltney) is now within Chester, Cheshire, and the Welsh sector of the community is known more specifically as Saltney Town or Saltney Ferry. The English-Welsh border runs down the middle of Boundary Lane in Saltney, the only urban street in England and Wales where this happens. This means that houses on the west side of the street are in the Flintshire County Council area and in the North Wales Police jurisdiction, while those on the east side are in the Cheshire West and Chester unitary authority area and in the Cheshire Police jurisdiction.

The name is derived from the former salt marshes on which it is built, lying on the River Dee. Once the terminus of Sir John Glynne's Canal, Saltney grew in the late 19th century and through the 20th century to its present population of 4,769 at the 2001 Census.

Research Tips

  • The GENUKI and UKBMD pages on Cheshire and its parishes point to many other sources of information on places within the county. The many small parishes and townships that existed before 1866 are treated individually as well as the larger towns and conurbations.
  • A Vision of Britain through Time provides a series of maps from the Ordnance Survey illustrating the towns and villages of Cheshire and also the borders between parishes. The following group of maps provide views of the county at various dates, illustrating the changes in administrative structure.
  • Cheshire Archives and Local Studies have organized a facility to compare 19th century maps (including tithe maps circa 1830) with modern Ordnance Survey maps. These are available for every civil parish. The detail is very magnified and it is difficult to read any placenames on the older maps. Cheshire Archives and Local Studies are the local keepers of historical material for the county.
