Shotwick is a small village and civil parish on base of the Wirral Peninsula. Since 2009 it has been part of the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester within the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. The village is situated close to the county of Flintshire on the England–Wales border. The village was located on the River Dee until it was canalised in 1736. The reclaimed land has since developed into the neighbouring Deeside Industrial Park.
The village, including part of the hamlet of Two Mills was a township and ancient parish within the Wirral Hundred. The township had a population of 95 in 1801, 100 in 1851, 82 in 1901 and 70 in 1951. Its other townships were Capenhurst, Great Saughall, Little Saughall and Woodbank.
