Feature Sets

The present church has a 16thc. W tower, but the remainder of the medieval church was destroyed by fire in 1798 and rebuilt in brick as a preaching hall in 1801-03. A 12thc. doorway has been reset under a porch in the S wall of the nave.


In 1086 the manor was held of Earl Hugh of Chester by Hugh Delamere. No church was noted at this time.


Exterior Features



A chevron voussoir of the same design as those on the doorway is reset in the tower of Frodsham church.
