Description

Frodsham and Helsby lie comfortably between the lovely Cheshire countryside that once was part of the great Royal Forest of Mara and Mondrem, now Delamere, and the mighty River Mersey. Above Frodsham is the high peak that once boasted the popular pleasure ground of the Mersey View or, as it is known locally, Overton Hills, with its stunning views across the Mersey estuary to Liverpool and North Wales. Frodsham lies at the confluence of the rivers Weaver and Mersey and as such was once an important port for the export of salt from Cheshire's many mines. Along the road towards Chester we arrive at the village of Helsby. Here can be found evidence of Neolithic settlements on the hill and caves set in the soft sandstone. This book will interest not just local history buffs but readers of all ages.
