We are located north of Northwich, close to the Anderton Boat Lift, and approx half-way between Manchester and Chester in the Northwest of England. Although a small rural village we are also just a handful of miles south from the M56 (Jct.10) and west of the M6 (Jct.19) network making our location idyllic for those who like the country life but still need to commute to their work and businesses.
Our village comprises some 900 residents from traditional farming communities who now live alongside more urban commuters who have settled in the village over the past 40 years, and who together share an enjoyment of rural life and a sense of community living.
We come under the jurisdiction of Cheshire West & Chester County Council as well as our own village Parish Council. We are also part of the church parish of Great Budworth, which was once the second largest parish in the country.
With just one Post Office shop, a primary school, a Methodist Chapel and a public house our facilities are rather limited by today's modern amenities, but that's part of the overall attraction of the village. However, we do have a limited bus service to take passengers to Northwich and Warrington.
Close by are other small rural villages, plus within less than a mile of our boundary, the unique Anderton Boat Lift on the Trent and Mersey canal. We enjoy the open spaces of Marbury Park and Budworth Mere. The Village is very active in country pursuits, being surrounded by greenbelt, and hosts many social groups and associations.
