Buckley’s name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon bok lee which means field or meadow. Some of its houses were recorded in the Domesday Book and it was next mentioned as the pasturage of the Manor of Ewloe in 1294. Buckley gained prominence as a centre for pottery and coal mining from the seventeenth century onwards and by the eighteenth century it was famous for its pottery and earthenware products. The geology of the area allowed surface mining of coal. The heavy clay soil was also suitable for brick manufacture and the town exported large quantities of bricks throughout Britain and overseas. The River Dee was important as a method of transport for these heavy goods while pottery was taken to Chester market by road. The last pottery kiln closed in 1946, but Castle Cement Works at Padeswood is still in operation.
Buckley gained urban district status in its own right in 1898, having been split between Mold and Hawarden until this time. Today it has a population of around 18,500 and has some light industry. It still commemorates the Buckley Jubilee on the second week in July. This originated from the Buckley Temperance Society who first organised a ceremonial march, starting on the Common, over 200 years ago. The canalisation of the River Dee in 1737 provided an immense opportunity for the expansion of the manufacturing of bricks and brick-related items at Buckley as it provided, along with the growth of the railways, a quick and efficient way of transporting heavy goods out of Buckley. The former wooden and metal narrow gauge tramways became main gauge railways with many of the burgeoning brickworks having their own sidings.
The twenty-five brickworks established between about 1760 and the mid 1860s dominated the town: some were short-lived affairs but others flourished. By the start of the 20th century, there were nineteen firms in business. By 1950, this had diminished to eleven. The names of the entrepreneurs who owned or managed these brickworks became the means of identifying some of them. e.g. Davisons Bottom and Top, Parrys, Catheralls, Hancocks: some others – Standard, Castle, Globe, Etna, Belmont, Drury, Brookhill. Between them they produced a great variety of high quality brick products which were exported all over the world.
The last brickworks in Buckley was at Lane End: it had been established in 1792 by John Rigby and William Hancock. In 1956 it became the property of the Castle Firebrick Company who also took over several of the other brickworks. Butterley took it over in 1971 and at its closure, announced in February 2003, it was owned by Hansons. It had been one of the biggest and earliest in the area, and the last one to close in Buckley. The last chimney in Buckley was demolished at Lane End Brickworks on the morning of Friday 26th November 2004. It marked the end of a 250-year era of robust and prosperous industry for the town.
