Details

Buckley is a town and community in Flintshire, situated 2 miles from the county town of Mold with a population of over 14,500. It is is contiguous with the nearby villages of Ewloe, Alltami and Mynydd Isa.

The name Buckley may derive from the Old English bok lee, meaning meadow, or field. The likely meaning of the name was "clearing in a beech wood" (with boc meaning beech tree and ley meaning wood, glade or clearing). The name could also have been construed from bucc, a buck or deer; or bwlch y clai, meaning clay hole.

Buckley is situated approximately 6 miles from the border with England to the east. The town is in the lee of the Snowdonian mountain range to the west and is therefore in a rain shadow area.

The town's industrial heritage of brick making, pottery and coal mining has now been replaced by a diverse range of enterprises located on five industrial estates within the town.
