Buckley is a town and community in Flintshire, north-east Wales, 2mi from the county town of Mold and contiguous with the villages of Ewloe, Alltami and Mynydd Isa. It is on the A549 road, with the larger A55 road passing nearby.Buckley is the second largest town in Flintshire in terms of population. At the 2011 Census, its community had a population of 15,665., with the contiguous Argoed community Buckley has a population of 21,502.A prominent nearby landmark is the Hanson Cement kiln just south of the town.HistoryBuckley was an Anglo-Saxon location, with some of its houses later recorded in the Norman Domesday Book of the 11th century. However, the first documented evidence of its existence dates from 1294 when it was described as the pasturage of the Manor of Ewloe, spelled as "Bokkeley".The name Buckley may derive from the Old English bok lee, meaning meadow, or field. The likely meaning of the name was "clearing in a beech wood" (with boc meaning beech tree and ley meaning wood, glade or clearing). The name could also have been construed from bucc, a buck or deer; or bwlch y clai, meaning clay hole.
