Afon Dyfrdwy - The River Dee
The Afon Dyfrdwy (The River Dee) is a sixty eight mile long river which rises at Llanuwchllyn in Snowdonia. The river travels in a south easterly direction, making its way across the border into England. It then changes course to a northerly direction towards its estuary, between North Wales and The Wirral Peninsula in England. It drains into Liverpool Bay and the Irish Sea.

The River Dee's course takes it through the Welsh towns of Berwyn, Corwen, Llangollen and Wrexham and the English towns of Connah's Quay and Farndon and the English City of Chester. At Wrexham the river is a natural border between Wales and England. At Connah’s Quay the river becomes tidal for the last sixteen miles.
Flintshire Bridge :: SJ2870
The Flintshire Bridge is a 294 m long cable-stayed bridge spanning the Dee Estuary in North Wales. The bridge links Flint and Connah's Quay to the shore north of the River Dee at the southern end of the Wirral Peninsula. The bridge cost £55million to construct.
The bridge was officially opened in 1998 by Queen Elizabeth II. It carries part of the A548 road and has been nicknamed 'the bridge to nowhere' by locals.
It is the largest asymmetric cable-stayed bridge in the whole of Britain.
