Plenty to enjoy here if you’re looking for green open spaces for great walks, trails for cyclists and horse riders with two excellent pub restaurants in the Conservation Area. If it’s a quick snack, local shops are nearby.
At certain times of day, you can take the single paddle ferry across the Manchester Ship Canal to the Nature Reserve and Woolston Weir or walk to Latchford Locks. There you might see ships going through and the swing bridge in operation.
Thelwall offers a range of property types from bungalows, to barn conversions and houses from the Victorian era to present day developments. Much of Thelwall’s growth is on land that formed the old manorial estate, sold in the 1920s, since when, the village has been moving gradually westwards towards Grappenhall and Latchford.
Thelwall has plenty going on for everyone – from Burns’ Night to Bonfire Night, with Easter Egg Hunts and our annual Rose Queen Festival in June. Thelwall Parish Hall and Chaigeley Field offer great facilities for events such as these. It’s the meeting place for societies and groups like The Bridgewater Players, the WI, U3A, Beavers and Guides. Behind the Parish Hall is Baden Lodge where our Cub and Scout groups meet.
Thelwall Community Infants School and Thelwall Community Junior School are key to our community. The Ferry Link Club and Ferry Holiday Club, based at the Parish Hall, serves families whose childcare needs lie outside school hours. For the little ones there are Day Nurseries and Pre-School facilities in the area.
All Saints’ Church is a Grade II listed Victorian building that’s undergone major conservation work on its stonework, wall paintings and stained glass. The church is open to visitors on Saturday mornings as well as Sunday services with something for everyone. Its community space can be booked for meetings and social groups too.
