Winsford is located in the heart of rural Cheshire and today has a population of around 33,000. The town developed and grew in the area as the result of large salt deposits which are relatively easy to mine. There was period of overspill in the 1960’s when Winsford’s population grew rapidly to house newcomers from Manchester and Liverpool with but recent population increases have come from natural growth and low house prices.
The name “Winsford” is of uncertain origin but probably derives from Wain’s or Wynne’s and Ford (Mr wains crossing point of the river Weaver). There may well have been a ford at the lower end of Welsh Lane where it meets the river.
Winsford is made up of three parishes; Over, St Chads, and Wharton. These ancient parishes were combined to form Winsford in the 19th century.
The river Weaver was canalised in 1798 from Frodsham to Winsford Town Bridge to allow salt to be transported to Northwich and Liverpool for export. The most prominent geographical feature is the Flashes. These are areas of open water created by salt being washed out of underlying rock and the subsequent collapse of the overlying rock. Flashes are common features of the Cheshire landscape and Winsford’s are the largest and most well-known. Top Flash is popular fishing water, Middle Flash is silted up and Bottom Flash is the largest and popular for sailing, fishing, and walking.
Winsford has become an important administrative centre with the building of Vale Royal Borough Council’s HQ in 1991 and Cheshire Fire Brigade HQ in 1997. Cheshire Police opened their new HQ at Woodford Park in November 2003. A number of national companies are located in Winsford and provide good jobs on the industrial estates around town. The town has a modern, covered shopping centre.
