Halkyn & Flint Mountain’s ground is just off junction 32 on the A55 Expressway, with the entrance to the football and cricket pitches on the B5123, at the southeastern edge of Pentre Halkyn. There is plenty of car parking available beside the football pitch and along the lane, whilst the views from the ground of the Dee Estuary and Wirral peninsula are exceptional.
Pentre Halkyn can also be reached via public transport by picking up the 126 bus route from Holywell bus station, and it should drop you off before the ground or by Saint Mary’s Church. Either bus stop is only about a five-minute walk from the ground.
Hot drinks and cold snacks are served via the snatch hut at the ground, whilst alcoholic drinks can be bought from the Halkyn cricket clubhouse, which is at the bottom of the car park. In addition, the Britannia Inn is just a ten-minute walk from the ground, where they also serve hot food as well as drinks.
Be aware, that the phone signal at the ground can be a little weak at times.
Flint Mountain was a relatively new name in Flintshire football having been founded in 2009. They played nearly all of their history within the North East Wales League, whilst also experiencing a nomadic existence. The club played at a number of pitches in and around Flint, before settling at Northop Hall Pavilion, home of Northop Hall Ladies team. The 2018-19 season would be Flint Mountain’s best in its short history, by claiming the North East Wales League title and the North East Wales FA Horace Wynne Cup, as part of a quadruple-winning season. It also saw them achieve their first promotion, moving into the Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) football system.
Prior to the 2019-20 season commencing, Flint Mountain announced they would be moving once more, from the Northop Hall Pavilion to Halkyn United’s old pitch, Pant Newydd. This was because the ground was Welsh National League Division One league standard, and had no one playing thereafter both Halkyn United and the proposed side of Halkyn Mountain had failed to appear. As a result of the relocation, the team changed its name to Halkyn & Flint Mountain to acknowledge its move to Pentre Halkyn. However, the side is scheduled to move grounds once again for the 2022-23 season, with Mountain returning back to their spiritual home of Flint to ground-share with Flint Town United at their Cae-y-Castell ground in order to obtain a third-tier licence.
