Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.
No charge for the many hours it takes building and maintaining the website but there are a number of other costs including hosting, domain registration and additional software which all add up. Just you starting your Amazon shopping by clicking on the banner above will help a lot. Thank you.
Last month David Cummings celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the opening of Christleton High School with the first part of a detailed illustrated article describing education in the village of Christleton over the years. The second and final part appears this month and is now online
This year brings the 60th Anniversary of the opening of Christleton High School. An event which David Cummings marks with a series concerning the history of education in the village of Christleton. The first part of this interesting insight starts in the August edition of The History File. Read it, learn it, as there may be questions later.
David Cummings and his wife Beryl have made a visit to what I consider to be a relatively undiscovered and magical area of the British Isles - The Northumbrian Coast. A place with wonderful castles, fishing villages, amazing scenery, vast beaches, sea birds, a young heroin and an early saint. Their visit to the Farne Islands is recorded in the August edition of Wildlife Watch. Read and enjoy.
There is just so much to see when you visit the one day Nantwich Show which was held on Wednesday 25th July this year. After admiring the the prize cattle, sheep, poultry and horses you might arrive at the Horticulture and Crafts Tents. Two residents of Christleton, Edward Elliott and Janet Brown will have been there before you as you will soon discover.
If you want to know more about the history of Christleton Fete then read the July edition of The History File by David Cummings. It is illustrated with a collection of Fete photographs from years gone by. There are also links to web pages on this site covering the last 10 years. I have recently spent many hours reconstructing these pages so that they should now load much faster and be more suitable for portable devices.
