Location - Marford is situated approximately 5 miles to the north east of Wrexham on the former main Wrexham to Chester Road. The village developed around Marford Hill which rises upwards marking the junction between the low-lying Cheshire Plain and the Welsh hills. The Cheshire Plain provides an important backdrop to the village extending for many miles to the east and providing views of distant landmarks including Eaton Hall and the River Dee. On the far horizon, interrupting the skyline are the Bickerton Hills. The Conservation Area centres on the unique historic core of the village which clings to the lower woodland slopes of Marford Hill. The attractive picturesque cottage orne design of many of the buildings gives the village a distinct identity. There are two public houses in Marford, one at the bottom of the Marford hill The Trevor Arms, and the other at the top, The Red Lion. There is one shop, the co-op which opened in June 2016, adjacent to The Red Lion. The village also has a disused quarry which was designated a SSSI in 1989 and was purchased in 1990 by the North Wales Wildlife Trust as a nature reserve. Road communications are excellent, being half a mile from the A483 Wrexham by-pass which connects to the Chester Southerly by-pass facilitating access to the national motorway network. The Wrexham Industrial Estate, Chester Business Park and Deeside Industrial Park are all within daily commuting distance, as are the larger centres of Liverpool and Manchester which are served by international airports.
