Introduction

Saltney is a small town in Flintshire, Wales. It is immediately to the west of the border with Cheshire in England and forms part of the Chester urban area.

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,

Higher Saltney more commonly known by local people as "Top Saltney" (part of the area known locally as Saltney) is in Chester, Cheshire, with the Welsh sector of the community known more specifically as Saltney Town. 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 County Council area and in the North Wales Police jusrisdictions, while those on the east side are in the Cheshire West and Chester unitary authority area and in the Cheshire Police jurisdiction.
