Things to do in Chirk Bank
Living in Chirk Bank, you’ll be within walking distance to both pubs within the village. The Bridge Inn is a proper country pub. Situated on the banks of the river, you’ll be able to enjoy some quality homemade meals, socialise with a drink in hand, all with gorgeous views of the water to boot. On the other side of the village, it’s the same story with The Poachers. Watch the boats pass you by as you look onto the Shropshire Union Canal from this modern family pub and restaurant.
Rural area close to schools

Both North and South of the border, there are plenty of schools for children of all age groups. With a variety of nurseries, primary and secondary schools located nearby, you can be sure that your children are receiving a great education, whilst not having to travel too far from home.
Enjoy Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and National Trust sites
While on face value there isn’t much to explore, it’s in fact the exact opposite.

Even before you make it, you’ll come across another sight to behold. Completed over 200 years ago by Shropshire icon Thomas Telford, the Chirk Aqueduct is an example of awe-inspiring canal architecture and a perfect day out for the whole family.
