Whitchurch

Afloat on Cheshire's Waterways

A Perfect Place to Visit

The firm of J B Joyce was established in Whitchurch in 1690 and continues to make magnificent tower clocks today.

Their clocks have an international reputation and can be found on cathedrals and palaces from Singapore to Kabul. One of their most loved and photographed clocks is the Eastgate clock in Chester. Many examples of Joyce's work can be seen around the town making Whitchurch "the Home of Tower Clocks".

Whitchurch is famous for cheesemaking and despite being in Shropshire is widely considered to be the home of Cheshire cheese. Many of the local cheese products are available at the farmers market that runs on the first Saturday of every month.

There are a number of interesting Town Trails, including the Clock Trail, and Jubilee Park is the starting point of five long distance walking routes, popular with walkers on holiday in the area.

An attractive walk out of the town along the Shropshire Way is the Llangollen Canal and the magnificent flight of staircase locks at Grindley Brook.
