A new book full of photos and details about one of Flintshire's biggest communities, gets its launch this weekend.

A Pictorial History of Buckley may be full of bite-sized information but it is the culmination of 50 years of research and was a year in the making.

Author, local historian Brian Bennett, who also lives in the town, has put together another great collection of historical gems.

And just as with his last book, A Pictorial History of Mold & District, he hopes to make a donation from sales to a local community cause.

He's hoping for the same success as his Mold and Nannerch titles, both of which have since sold out.

Amongst many facts and details, Brian's latest publication, which has an initial print run of 450 copies, shows how various streets have changed over the years.

The 75-year-old also explains the meaning behind particular names given to places but one that is still proving a bit of a mystery, is an area known as The Trap.

In the vicinity of the Hope & Anchor pub, officially Ewloe Place, the origins of its well-known and much used name The Trap, is unclear, with several suggestions as to why presented in the book.

Whether you grew up in the town or pass through, A Pictorial History of Buckley offers an insight of how the past shaped its present.

Brian, who ponders Rhydymwyn as his next challenge, will be at The Bookshop, in Mold for the title's launch on Saturday, September 25, at 10.30am.

A Pictorial History of Buckley, is £7.95 with a donation from profits going to a local cause, and available from The Bookshop and Siop Y Siswrn, both in Mold.
