Overton-on-Dee (Owrtyn in Welsh) as its name suggests is situated on the banks of the River Dee and is located between Wrexham in Wales to the north and Ellesmere in Shropshire, England to the south. Overton is not to be mistaken for the nearby villages of Little Overton and Overton Bridge.
Overton is part of that little piece of Wales that projects into North West England known as the Maelor. The maelor is split into two parts, that part west of the River Dee is Maelor Gymraeg (Welsh Maelor) and the part east of the River Dee, in which sits Overton, is Maelor Saesneg (English Maelor). The village enjoys magnificent views towards Llangollen and the Welsh hills.
