Ruabon Conservation Area
Ruabon Conservation Area encompasses the heart of the village, which is located approximately 6 miles south of Wrexham. Ruabon Mountain rises up to the west and the Afon Eitha runs directly through the village. The Conservation Area centres on the Grade I listed Church of St Mary’s. The influences of the prominent Wynnstay Estate as well as local industries are displayed in the various architectural styles evident in the villages’ development.

The Ruabon Conservation Area Character Assessment and Management Plan was adopted in December 2010. The Ruabon Conservation Area Article 4(2) Direction came into effect in September 2010 and the Grenville Terrace Article 4(2) Direction came into effect in December 2010.
