Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.

No charge for the many hours it takes building and maintaining the website but there are a number of other costs including hosting, domain registration and additional software which all add up. Just you starting your Amazon shopping by clicking on the banner above will help a lot. Thank you.

Christleton Hall

Village breathes a Sigh of Relief

The residents of Christleton are feeling a lot happier today as the sword of Damocles which has been hanging over the village since last summer disintegrated. Yesterday Cheshire West and Chester City councillors decided by a vote of 10 to 1 to reject the controversial plan to develop Christleton Hall into apartments and erect 27 houses. We live in strange times with unwelcome decisions but this time common-sense prevailed.

Just who was the Reverend Canon Lionel Garnett. There is a large memorial to him in front of St. James' Church, Christleton but how much more do you know?

Following the acclaimed success of the Christleton Great War Voices 1914-18 Project, members of Christleton Local History Group are beginning to research the story of the Parish in WWII. Their starting point is the War Memorial and the names of the fallen from WWII.
