OTHER LOCALLY SIGNIFICANT PARKS AND GARDENS IN CHESHIRE
Trust volunteers have focused on the research and recording of non designated parks and gardens of which there are over 400 in Cheshire. Some of these sites have the potential to be of national significance but many will be local heritage assets. Completed reports are submitted to owners, the relevant local authority, Cheshire Archives and Local Studies who make the information available in local libraries, and Cheshire Historic Environment Record (CHER). Reports are also available from the Trust on request. Please contact us if you have queries regarding a potentially historic park and garden.
Note: Reports have been completed for those sites in capital letters. * indicates a Short Draft report

APPLETON HALL c1820
Appleton Hall was built by the Lyon family, bankers and partners in Greenall's Wilderspool brewery. The Hall was demolished and the site is now occupied by part of Bridgewater High School and the surrounding parkland is a modern housing estate.
In 1850, Bagshaw's Directory described Appleton Hall as a beautiful, modern mansion, stuccoed, and surrounded by a finely undulating park, interspersed with shrubberies and plantation.
