Bangor is y coed, Wrexham County
Bangor-on-Dee (Welsh: Bangor-is-y-coed) is situated in Wrexham County Borough, in the North East of Wales. The picturesque village is set in glorious countryside between the town of Wrexham in Wales and the town of Whitchurch in Cheshire, England but is surprisingly undiscovered on the tourist route.
The village is located in a natural hollow, alongside the River Dee. Bangor-is-y-coed, as it is known in Welsh, is sheltered against the winds from all directions, to the North is the plateau on which the town of Wrexham is situated, to the south the landscape rises up to the village of Overton-on-Dee.

The village is approached via an outstanding bridge dating from about 1660, it is a five-arched stone bridge believed to have been built by Inigo Jones. Bangor is within easy reach of many excellent facilities including nearby golf courses, fishing on the beautiful River Dee with visiting anglers welcome by arrangement, attractive country walking routes, excellent accommodation, and of course the renowned Bangor Racecourse nearby. Visitors can enjoy the village sights from a pleasant circular walk that stretches from the parish church of St Dunawd along the riverside.
Jump racing has been taking place at Bangor on Dee Racecourse since 1859 and the course is steeped in history. All the greatest jump jockeys have ridden here and the present crop of top jockeys all regularly turn up at each meeting.
The racecourse has a unique character, exemplified by the fact that this is the only one in the country that doesn´t have a Grandstand! No worries on the viewing front though as the main grass viewing bank provides a natural amphitheatre to the racing action. Over the course of the year, there are 15 fixtures spread throughout the four seasons giving everyone a chance to come racing at some point in the year and experience the magical charm of Bangor races.
