Encyclopedia > Flint, Wales

Flint (Welsh: Y Fflint) is the county town of Flintshire, north Wales, lying on the estuary of the River Dee.


The town, which has the oldest town charter in Wales, dating from 1284, is known for Flint Castle, on which Edward I of England began construction in 1277. The castle is of particular note, as it is where Richard II was handed over to his enemy Henry Bolingbroke in 1399, and is the setting for Act III, Scene III of the Shakespeare play Richard II. Flint is home to a successful male voice choir.


Flint hosted the National Eisteddfod in 1969.
