Welcome to Frodsham

Welcome to Frodsham, Cheshire - a modern market town, 800 years in the making.

Situated just to the west of the River Weaver in Cheshire, overlooking the Mersey estuary, Frodsham is a vibrant market town with a rich history. First established by the Saxons and later mentioned in the Domesday Book,  in the 13th century Frodsham became an important borough and port under the ownership of the Earls of Chester.

Because of its location, at the confluence of the River Weaver and River Mersey, the town grew to be a significant port in the coast trade.

Frodsham was particularly important for the export of salt, which was transported down river from Nantwich and Northwich. In 1894 the Manchester Ship Canal was opened through Frodsham.

Today the lively town has a thriving economy, with a busy Thursday market, a wide selection of shops along its bustling main thoroughfares and many other attractions, making it a popular place to live and work, and a favourite destination for visitors.

Dominating the town is Frodsham Hill, a clear landmark on the Cheshire Plain.  The hill offers dramatic views over the Mersey Estuary and is popular with walkers who know Frodsham as the starting point of the Sandstone Trail, one of North West England's finest long-distance walks.
