Map of Christleton in 1066

Christleton is a village situated just over 2 miles south of Chester. Leave the A41 under the flyover to travel along Pepper Street passing over the Shropshire Union Canal and then the Law College on your left before arriving at the village green. Here you will find St. James’ Parish Church and the Parish Hall. Going straight ahead will take you down Birch Heath Lane but turning left along Brown Heath Road will take you past the Methodist Church to the village pond know locally as The Pit. Home sometimes in the first part of the year to a pair of nesting swans and the cygnets.

Had you turned right at the village green you would have travelled along Village Road past the village shop, once the Post Office and opposite is the Ring O' Bells public house. Continuing on the Old Farm appears on the right, the oldest house in Christleton and the Village Institute on the left hand side. Further on you will come to Christleton High School and to the right in Quarry Lane Christleton Primary School. Carrying down Rowton Bridge Road you will come to a hump back bridge with traffic lights taking you over the canal. Then back to the A41. Turn left for Whitchurch and the south or right for the City of Chester
