Northop is an historic village with a rich mix of building types and styles evolved over the last eight centuries. In particular the medieval church is prominently located and the visual signature of Northop. The High Street is the centre of village life: the Post Office provides a real 'Community' service; the Edith Bankes Memorial Hall hosts many community activities and the pubs are real local pubs. Northop has a vibrant social and cultural life. For a village with a population of no more than 1000 people, the community supports a nationally recognised Championship Silver Band, a regionally successful cricket club, an equine competition centre attracting competitors from throughout North Wales and the North West of England, a championship golf course and a drama group which stages a pantomime each year featuring many local characters to hilarious effect!

Northop Heritage Group is a small group of Northop residents that exists to promote the unique heritage within and around the village of Northop. The group was formed in 2003 as an offshoot of Northop 2000. Whilst not undertaking extensive primary research, the group relies heavily on existing published material such as the excellent Pride of Northop book available from Northop Post Office. The Group's first promotional activity was the production and publication of the Northop Heritage Trail leaflet. This leaflet, now in its third print run is available widely around the region, distributed to key tourist and retail outlets by members of the group.
We've put together a directory of businesses, places of interest, places to stay, places to eat and anything else that may be useful to people who live or are just visiting Northop. Use the links to the left to go straight to some of categories within the directory or use the main 'Directory' link at the top of the page to see all the categories and browse the entries alphabetically. To add an entry to the directory please use the contact form and include all the relevant details.
Northop has been celebrating following the announcement the village is the winner of the Flintshire Best Kept Community for settlements of between 1000 and 5000 inhabitants. This is the first time in over 10 years that Northop has achieved this honour although it has previously shared the top spot with Caerwys. The icing on the cake is that Ffordd Gwynedd in Northop was given the first prize in the Senior Citizen Estate. Such success is only possible with the hard work that individual residents do to keep their gardens looking lovely and tidy as well as volunteers that very kindly give their free time to help with litter picks and other projects in the public areas of the village. Many thanks to all those who get involved!
