Bronington is a parish in the Maelor detached part of Flintshire. It corresponds to the townships of Bronington and Tybroughton in the ancient parish of Hanmer with Iscoed from the ancient parish of Malpas. It is bounded by Cheshire to the north, Shropshire to the east and south and the Flintshire communities of Maelor South, Hanmer and Willington Worthenbury to the west.

It has an area of 8,600 acres and a population of 1,228 (2001 Census).[1] The easternmost part of Bronington is also the easternmost part of Flintshire.

The village church, Holy Trinity, was converted from a former brick tithe barn in 1836.[2] To the north-east of the village is Iscoyd Hall, a stately home with surrounding parkland which was built around 1740 and enlarged in the 19th century. To the south of the village is Fenn's Moss, an area of peat bog stretching over into Shropshire, which was declared a national nature reserve in 1996 because of its importance for wildlife.
