Ewloe is a small town in Flintshire, contiguous with Hawarden and Buckley and near to Queensferry, and Shotton. Situated close to the Flintshire/Cheshire border, Ewloe forms part of Deeside. The A55 expressway passes through the town and its most notable landmark is Ewloe Castle. At the 2001 Census, the population was 4,862 (2,390 males, 2,472 females).[1]

In 2004 professional footballer Michael Owen bought a small street of houses, Austen Close in Ewloe, for his extended family. He also grew up and owned a house nearby.[2]


Ewloe grew rapidly during the late 1990s and early 2000s and is now the home of the internet-based Moneysupermarket.com and construction company Redrow. HSBC Bank along with many other firms including Unilever can be found in Ewloe, who now occupy the old Alyn and Deeside District Council Office.
