The picturesque town of Frodsham is situated in the shadow of Frodsham Hill, in the County of Cheshire, in the northwest of England. It is a vibrant market town, and, in medieval times, it was an important borough and port belonging to the earls of Chester. The town is featured in the Domesday Book, which is a record of the great survey of much of England and parts of Wales, completed in 1086, executed for William I of England, or William the Conqueror.
The town is of Saxon origin and it is believed to have been created a borough, in the early 13th century, probably by Earl Ranulf III. It became a town in July, 1992, and elected its first Mayor. Since then, it has truly blossomed, fact which is evident, today, through the recent (post-2002) opening or modernisation of contemporary-style bar/restaurants, take-away food shops and public houses, and in the continued presence of small, specialised, businesses operating from town centre shops, approximated at a number of around 200.
Frodsham offers its visitors many facilities and opportunities for leisure and entertainment, which include popular outdoor and indoor sports events, The Community Centre and Castle Park Arts Centre, as well as the market held each Thursday, which evidences Frodsham's viability as a trading centre, drawing a large number of enthusiasts, every time it takes place.
Frodsham has a rich historical heritage, and still retains much of its historical character, with sandstone buildings and whitewashed cottages, whilst its village church, dating back to the 11th century, stands on the hill overlooking the village.
Castle Park Arts Centre is a pleasant stop, when sightseeing in Frodsham, featuring many exhibitions and displays throughout the year. The Arts Centre is run by volunteers as a charitable trust and it is housed in converted stables with an outstanding clock tower, which, although dates since 1853, when was supplied to Joseph Stubs, still keeps time accurate. Local services and handmade goods can also be found within the courtyard.
Frodsham Hill is also worth visiting, being an important piece of local history. There is a war memorial that stands at the top of the hill, visible from almost everywhere in the town, which was completed in 1921, featuring 105 names of men who died in the service of their country in 1914-18 and in 1939-45.
Another not-to-be-missed attraction in Frodsham are considered the Castle Park Gardens. The park has an extensive range of trees and flowers, and also includes a large children's play area with everything from climbing frames to swings and slides and tennis and bowling facilities.
Also worth visiting in Frodsham, there is The Sandstone Trail, which follows the sandstone ridge from Frodsham to Whitchurch. The 30-mile long route is marked with finger posts and offers walkers the opportunity to enjoy each town along the way, starting from Frodsham, passing Alvanley Cliff, through Delamere Park, and heading into Willington. The middle section gives excellent views of Peckforton and Beeston Castles.
