Flint Mountain (Welsh: Mynydd Y Fflint) is a small village seated in Flintshire, North Wales, approximately 12 miles west of the city of Chester, midway between Mold and Flint, and situated just off junction 33 of the A55 North Wales Expressway. Points of interest include the Coach and Horses pub, and recently developed football club Flint Mountain FC, who have been able to acquire star striker Sean Williams of 'Woostback' fame. Sean has however severely disappointed in his short stint at the club, plundering a measly 3 goals in 43 appearances. However, he refuses to be dropped, occasionally paying some of the fans who have to watch him to ensure they come back next week to see another dire individual performance. He has recently turned his hand to cricket however, scoring a fantastic century in his first match, that has seen the social media campaign 'Woostbat' do the rounds in the local area. In Mid-2006, the population of Flint Mountain was 1,958.[1]

On clear days to the north and east, The Wirral can be seen.
