Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Flintshire (Welsh: Sir y Fflint), also known as the County of Flint, is one of thirteen historic counties, a vice county and a former administrative county, which mostly lies on the north east coast of Wales. Flintshire was notable as having one of the few large county exclaves (an area known as "English Maelor" or "Maelor Saesneg") to survive most of the 20th century.The administrative county of Flint was abolished under the Local Government Act 1972 on Monday 1 April 1974, becoming part of the new county of Clwyd. The exclaves became part of Wrexham Maelor district - other parts formed the districts of Alyn and Deeside, Delyn and Rhuddlan. A unitary authority, also named Flintshire, was formed in 1996 under the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994, consisting only of the Alyn and Deeside and Delyn districts - the Wrexham Maelor parts now form part of Wrexham County Borough, with the former Rhuddlan district forming the northernmost part of the current Denbighshire unitary authority.
