Chirk Bank is in the Parish of Weston Rhyn, but has its own individual character. Although, a small community we are lucky enough to have two public houses and a Methodist Chapel. It is however, the attraction of the Llangollen canal, in particular Chirk Aqueduct, that draws people to the village.
Recently, the village has received an enormous influx of visitors because it is now part of a World Heritage Site. One of only a few World Heritage Site that spans two countries.
A Chirk Bank Community Group is now nine years old and is selling teas and cakes to visitors to the canal on Tuesdays throughout the Summer at the local Methodist Hall and provides visitor information to the tourist.
Recently, a community forum has been set up for the three North Shropshire Parishes of St. Martin's, Gobowen and Weston Rhyn: http://www.community-online.co.uk/forums/index.php?/forum/8-weston-rhyn-local-chat/
