Living in Alpraham and History

Living here


Alpraham is a fantastic village – it has a rich history, thriving community, strong agricultural base, two public houses, a bowling green, horse riding facilities, regular social events and much more.

Within a 10 mile or so radius of Alpraham there are a multitude of other places to go out to eat, to go with the kids, to play sport and much more.

Our close neighbours include Bunbury, Calveley, Tillston Fearnall and others. Three miles to the north we find the picturesque village of Tarporley with its shops, pubs and restaurants. It can also be easily accessed via the local bus service. We can head 6 miles south to the black and white market town of Nantwich. It too has its own range of shops, supermarkets, a museum, restaurants and pubs.



Alpraham Village is predominately a rural farming Village with much of the land now owned by The Wellcome Trust and farmed by long term residents. Alpraham has a history with it being on the Shropshire Union Canal and in the village are the Grade 2 listed locks, bridge and stables of Bunbury locks.

This is an opportunity for all to add more views and recollections on the Village. There are other papers already written - such as a brief summary of the history, the evolving natural environment, social history, etc.
