Winsford only became a town – as such, in 1894, but it is the successor to a long and distinguished history. The two main parts are Over and Wharton, which are separated by the River Weaver. Both settlements were mentioned in the Doomsday Book in 1086. “Over” is a pre Roman name indicating a settlement on a hill.
The hilltop road following Delamere Street and Swanlow Lane contains some of the oldest buildings in the town, some dating back to the 17th century. It is dominated by the spire of St John’s Church, built as a memorial to the wife of the second Lord Delamere. It is the earliest known work of the architect John Douglas. Also by Douglas is the striking “Over Congs.” more correctly called Over United Reformed Church.
St Chad’s Church is the oldest place of worship in Winsford. Recent archaeological opinion suggested that it occupies a pre Christian place of pagan worship, though tradition says it was dropped out in the fields by the devil when he tried to steal it to prevent worshippers using it. A tiny fragment of a Saxon cross shows that Christian worship has taken place here for over a thousand years.
Hugh Starkey, Gentleman Usher to Henry VIII, extensively rebuilt it in 1543. His tomb has a fine brass portrait of him in armour. One of his former properties is Knight’s Grange- one of the earliest brick houses in Cheshire- which is now a pub at the centre of a large modern sports and golf complex.
In Norman times the area was densely forested and the last Norman Earl of Chester died while hunting at Darnhall south of the town. The Earldom of most of Winsford was given to Prince Edward, Son of Henry III. He in turn gave his lands around Winsford to the great Abbey of Vale Royal, which he founded in the Weaver Valley to the north of the town in 1277. It was intended to be the “fairest and finest” and had the largest Cistercian Abbey Church in England.
The development of Winsford started after 1721. In that year parliament gave permission for locks and other improvements on the River Weaver to allow sea-going vessels to reach Winsford Bridge. The Weaver flat boats were specially designed to carry Lancashire coal to the salt works and then to take the salt to Liverpool for export. By the middle of the 19thC. The Weaver valley was lined with salt works using open pans to extract salt from brine. It is impossible to tell where the underground brine streams ran but where the water seeped into the underground beds of salt it dissolved the rock and the ground fell into the underground caverns to form ‘flashes’.
