Tour CheshireCheshire (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) For the architectural tourist, one of Cheshire's greatest and most characteristic delights is the use of timber. Little Moreton Hall has the most elaborate, fantastical and wholeheartedly vulgar display of black and white timbering that England has to offer, while the churches include an array of fine late medieval roofs. Chester, whose famous rows with their upper walkways are unique in medieval Europe, continues the timber-framed tradition in its riotous Victorian buildings but glories also in its Roman past, its medieval cathedral and its encircling city wall. Lyme Park shows an extraordinary continuity of building from the Elizabethan to the Georgian period. The northern fringe of the county includes the built-up areas of Manchester's 'stockbroker belt' and the Wirral, with the formal splendour of Birkenhead, and Port Sunlight, the first garden city developed for ordinary working people.

A Year of Walks in CheshireA Year of Walks in Cheshire These 12, circular walks, one for each month of the year, visit a range of exceptional locations in Cheshire. You have the option of a full or half-day walk to each spot, whilst the month-by-month approach encourages you to walk in harmony with the changing seasons - dispelling the false perception of walking as an activity suitable only for summer. The routes range from 4 to 12 miles, and all feature a point of special interest: churches, castles, canals or monuments. Each destination has something special to offer at the particular time of year: Swettenham's Daffodil Dell, Audlem's canal boats in the summer, winter birds along the wilderness of the Dee Estuary or Shuttingsloe transformed by snow. There is special emphasis on unusual features of the countryside and landscape, plus detailed route descriptions, maps and colour photos. Illuminating commentary highlights the weather patterns, folklore, country customs, festivals and natural history of each month. With its details of flowers, birds and animals to spot, this guide would be excellent for families.

Viking CheshireViking Mersey: Scandinavian Wirral, West Lancashire and Cheshire 1100 years ago marked the start of a Viking invasion of the Mersey region, which reached out into Chester, West Lancashire and beyond. The Vikings left behind place-names like Kirkby, Kirby, Meols and Croxteth, which can also be found in Iceland, another region they were invading. This book is about these people in peace and war, their customs, traditions, pastimes, their paganism and their Christianity, their governments and their financial centre at Chester. It also includes a section on how modern genetic research is being used to discover the descendants of these Invaders in the modern day population.
