Welcome to Frodsham
A Good Time at Frodsham
Start of the Sandstone Trail
In Medieval times, Frodsham was a busy port exporting salt to Liverpool and beyond.
Later the River Weaver was canalised becoming navigable up to Winsford, and the Manchester Ship Canal was constructed.
The castle was destroyed in the Civil War and a building on the site is now the Castle Arts Centre.
A former owner, Edward Abbot Wright, once missed a train because the stable clock was slow and he ordered that in future it should be kept 3 minutes fast. 100 years later it is still checked each day to make sure that it is! The arts centre now provides exhibition and workshop spaces, a cafe and craft units.
Main Street is the chief thoroughfare. It is wide and tree-lined and has a number of 17th-century buildings including the Bears Paw, an old coaching inn that has retained original features such as an old oven, low ceilings and beams. There is even a cut through in the wall showing a piece of wattle and daub walling.
Stride out along the Sandstone Trail, which starts in Frodsham, and sample some of the finest walking in Cheshire. Follow the ridge of sandstone that rises dramatically from the Cheshire plain and enjoy this invigorating walk at any time of year.
Frodsham has a popular Street Market on a Thursday along Main Street - where you will find small attractive shops.
Close by is Catton Hall which is one of the North West's premier outdoor activities venues. Activities include Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery, Air Rifling, Paintball, Quad Biking, and Falconry.
