Rhosnesni, Wrexham

Rhosnesni is a ward in the community of Acton in Wrexham, Wales and constitutes an electoral division of the town of Wrexham. The settlement developed around the toll gate on Holt Road (the cottage of which still stands) and was expanded in the late 19th century by the addition of estate houses for the Acton Park estate. Following the breakup of the Acton estate in the 20th century much of the local land was bought up by private developers and Rhosnesni became an urban area.
