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.
That's the subject for the History File for November written by David Cummings. Just the start of explaining how common lands were essential elements in the life of Christleton as well as all over the country.
The History File written by David Cummings for this month provides a fascinating peep into life in Christleton at the end of the 17th century and beginning of the 18th century.
One of the key figures in the development of Christleton village is Lucy Ann Townsend Ince. In the September edition of The History File David Cummings gives us an insight into the lady and her achievements.
It is a coincidence that David Cummings has been covering the history of Christleton Hall over the past two months just as the University of Law put forward plans to remodel the Hall and construct 50 houses on the car park. This month the story continues with the will of Robert Townsend.
