Bronington is a local government community, the lowest tier of local government, part of Wrexham County Borough in Wales. The community has an area of 3,482 hectares and a population of 1,228 (2001 Census).[1]

The village church, Holy Trinity, was converted from a former brick tithe barn in 1836.[2] To the north-east of the village is Iscoyd Hall, a stately home with surrounding parkland which was built around 1740 and enlarged in the 19th century. To the south of the village is Fenn's Moss, an area of peat bog stretching over into Shropshire, which was declared a National Nature Reserve in 1996 because of its importance for wildlife.
