It’s part of the Chester Chronicle series of newspapers, which covers western Cheshire, the Wirral, and Deeside generally. Originally it was a local sub-edition of the Chronicle, but became a separate title for the first time in 1996, as the Flint & Holywell Chronicle. After reverting briefly to being a sub-edition of The Chronicle in 2005, it adopted its present identity (and switched from broadsheet to tabloid format) in 2006.
The series is published by Chronicle Newspapers, which is part of Trinity Mirror Cheshire. Other newspapers in the series are the Chester Chronicle itself (City and Country Editions) and the Frodsham & Helsby Chronicle.
As with the other newspapers in the series, the editorial offices are in Chester.
It used to have its own website, but lost it in April 2013 in favour of the Flintshire sub-site on the Daily Post‘s website (to which the old flintshirechronicle.co.uk
URL now redirects).
It’s published on Fridays.
