Warford has been a recognised village for centuries with it being the first mentioned in the Domesday Book. Considerable research about the area has been carried out by a lady called Claire Moores, and a summary of her findings has been published on the Warford history website http://www.warfordhistory.co.uk
Amongst other articles there is fascinating information about the Baptist Chapel and First World War monuments that were built in memory of the parishioners of Great Warford who served in the Great War.
It makes a great read and Claire was kind enough to bring some of her material to one of the previous picnics. Check out her site to read more and see the pictures of how everything looked back in the day!
The 21stcentury Great Warford is a charming village nestling within the boundaries of Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and Knutsford. Renowned for its rural farms, livery yards, popular golf course and of course the beautiful walks that have been featured in Cheshire Life.
The area has a rather more modern claim to fame as the scene of much of the action in The Real Housewives of Cheshire, Warford Hall being home to Dawn and Ashley Ward and the venue of their annual Crème de la Crème charity ball.
