Higher Kinnerton is a small rural village of some 800 dwellings in south-east Flintshire, lying roughly 6 miles west of Chester, on the western fringe of the Dee valley and on the lower slopes of the nearby Clwydian range. It’s sister-village of Lower Kinnerton lies across the border in England. Higher Kinnerton has a strong farming heritage and has grown into a vibrant community over the years. Until 1962 Kinnerton was served by the railway between Chester and Denbigh, and the old railway embankment forms part of the village boundary to the south-east, making a pleasant walk. The current village church, All Saints, dates back to 1893 and is constructed of red Ruabon brick. Strangely, although Higher Kinnerton is in Wales, the church is part of the Dodleston Parish (in England) and is in the Diocese of Chester. The village has been awarded Best Kept Community status by Flintshire four times, in 2012, 2014, 2017 and 2019.
