"Wirral Wandering - Willaston and Around" Willaston by sandysmith

Willaston Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 56 photos

Willaston was a place I rediscoverd when a VT friend came to stay. Sometimes you can forget how interesting a place
near to your own doorstep can be, so many thanks Rosie (kennetRose) for reopening my eyes to this place:-))

Willaston is an interesting Cheshire village - a typical farming settlement, grouped around the village green but unusual in that village
greens are very rare in Cheshire, and for the strikingly rectangular shape of the old Willaston Green.

Many delightful old buildings can be seen today in Willaston:-

Bennett's Old Hall (c. 1558), Ashtree Farm (early 17th century and perhaps 15th century in parts), The Farm (1616), The Old Red Lion (1631), Corner House (1637), Pear Tree Farm (c. 1697), White House Farm ( early 18th century), The Nag's Head (1733), Cherry Brow Farm (1739), and Smithy Cottage (18th century).

Rosie in Willaston

Rosie enjoyed Willaston and meandering round the Wirral one Saturday in October. Its was a blustery but bright day...bit cold for most people but the sky was blue and hardly anybody about...perfect for photography in fact so Rosie and her tripod made the most of it!

Near to Willaston is the extremely picturesque village of Thornton Hough. Beautiful period houses surround an award winning village green and old smithy but its even more colourful and interesting in the summer with its annual Scarecrow Festival.
