Wrexham (Welsh: Wrecsam) is a county borough centred on the town of Wrexham in north-east Wales. The county borough has a population of 130,200 inhabitants. Just under half of the population live either within the town of Wrexham or its surrounding conurbation of urban villages. The remainder living to the south and east of the town in more rural areas.
The county borough was formed on April 1, 1996. Borough status was inherited from the town of Wrexham, granted over 150 years ago. Most of the area was previously part of the district of Wrexham Maelor - with several communities coming from Glyndwr - in the county of Clwyd.
The area includes a portion of the eastern half of the former county of Denbighshire (although not forming part of the modern county of Denbighshire), and two former exclaves of Flintshire - Maelor Saesneg and the parish of Marford and Hoseley.
