A quick history

The town of Winsford was formed when three parishes - Over, Wharton and St Chads - were combined during the 19th century. The local area is best known for its links to the salt industry, which brought a boom to the town, especially after the River Weaver was developed into a canal and used for trade and transportation.

By the 1930s, the salt industry had declined. In the middle of the 20th century, Winsford was designated as an overspill town from the city of Liverpool, which saw another spike in the population. Since then, the town has been modernised and now it is a thriving place to live at the heart of Cheshire.
