Cheshire Views

Cheshire is a beautiful county not far from our home so its a place where we often go for day trips. So much nature and interesting things to see that this page is just a flavour of what there is to see. :-))

Several gardens in the area too - this is a quaint walled garden at Norton Priory near Daresbury. Daresbury is also the birthplace of the author Lewis Carrol.

Several little villages with traditional pubs, cottages and churches can be discovered just off the country lanes. Look out for village stocks too.

At Anderton is this unusual canal boat elevator to aid canal boats travelling on nearby canals at differing heights.

If you like boat and canals then don't miss the Boat museum at Ellesmere Port

    Ahh you lucky girl, you live so close to these beauties :-)) Haha, I should learn to drive on the wrong side so that I can explore the sidestreets and villages. The boat lift is interesting too :-)

    Between the hikes, sunsets and great old pubs, maybe it should be us visiting you soon one day, Sandy. Then it'll be me grinning like a Cheshire Cat. ;)
