Deeside is the name given to an industrial collection of towns that lie on or around the River Dee in Wales. These towns include, Connah's Quay, Mancot, Pentre, Shotton, Queensferry, Sealand, Broughton, Hawarden, Ewloe, Sandycroft and parts of Saltney. The largest town of these is Connah's Quay, but the entire towns have a collective population of 50,000.
Deeside is known primarily for its work opportunities, providing work to outsiders in towns such as Cheshire, Merseyside and North Wales. Deeside Industrial Park provides jobs in many different sectors from food production to construction. Deeside is also home to steel manufacturer Corus, Toyota's engine manufacturing plant and aircraft factory Airbus.
The most visited landmark in this collection of towns is the Flintshire Bridge, which was built in 1998 and officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II.
