The Wynstay Arms Hotel RuabonThis website is run and edited by Ruabon Community Council, supported by members of the community. It contains a large and expanding amount of information which we feel is relevant to Ruabon, from leisure and businesses to health, education, faith and its huge part in the history of the wider area.

Ruabon is one of the larger villages in Wrexham, with a population of approximately 3,000.

It has a rich history which has been traced through the past 2,000 years. Sites of historical and archaeological interest still remain within walking distance of the centre of the village and many of these are highlighted on the History and Leisure Pages.

St Mary's Church RuabonSt Marys Church, is a Grade 1 listed building which dates from the 14th Century and is shared with the Catholic Community. There is also the Methodist Church on the High Street and the Congregational Church in Church Street. The congregations of all the churches have strong ties within the community and give help and support to those in need.

The A483, which divides the village, connects it with Wrexham Town and Chester to the North, Shropshire to the East and Oswestry, Builth Wells and Llandovery to the South.

Through Ruabon Railway Station, trains connect the village to Wrexham, Chester and Holyhead to the North, Birmingham to the East and Cardiff to the South.

There is also an integrated bus service from the station providing transport to local destinations such as Llangollen, the aqueduct at Froncysyllte and the surrounding areas.
