Shotton is a town in Flintshire, north Wales, lying on the River Dee. It has a population of around 9,000 people.

Originally founded by Anglo-Saxons, the town grew from the eighteenth century around coal mining and farming on reclaimed marshland. Steel works later grew up, and Shotton also became a railway junction.

The steel works was originally owned by John Summers, a local businessman. It was later bought by the government under British Steel. It was privatised and acquired by Corus Group, which was then  purchased by India's Tata Steel (which is part of one of the oldest and largest business conglomerates in India, Tata Group) in January 2007.

The town lies under the Hawarden Bridge, completed in 1889 and originally a swing-opening bridge.

Re-The Royal Charter
I think the "Royal Charter" has seen its last days and has been shut down to make room for a wine & restaurant type place.
