Details

Saltney is a small town in north Wales. It is immediately to the west of the border with Cheshire in England and forms part of Chester's built-up area.

Saltney was the gateway to Wales for the Roman Legions based in Deva (Chester) and still is one of the most used routes into North Wales today. The name is derived from the former salt marshes on which it is built, lying on the bank of the River Dee. It was once the terminus of Sir John Glynne's Canal and was famous for shipbuilding and chain making. Saltney grew in the late nineteenth century and throughout the twentieth century to its present population of just under 6,000 inhabitants

The English-Welsh border runs down the middle of Boundary Lane in Saltney, the only urban street in England/Wales where this happens. This means that houses on the west side of the street are in the Flintshire while those on the east side are in Cheshire West.
