This is the website of Moulton Parish Council. Moulton is a rural village situated in the heart of Cheshire, between Winsford and Northwich, and is home to much-renowned Moulton Crow Fair in July each year. It is home to around 3,000 people and contains two pubs, two clubs, two churches, a school, a local convenience store, a school, a playing field, an adventure group, a bowling green, one iconic Crow Fair and much more.
Moulton can trace its history to Norman times, and was mentionned in the Doomsday book, where it was part of the estate of Baron Richard de Vernon of Shipbrook. In 1086, the annual value of the two dwellings, two fields, meadow and woodland was five shillings. The village changed in Victorian times, with many workers from the salt mining industry, made thier homes in Moulton. The terraced houses of Church Street and Regent Street were built for the employees. Over the last sixty years, several estates have been built to grow the village to its current size.
The parish sits on elevated ridge above the Weaver Navigation and offers sweeping vistas across the vales towards Meadowbank and Davenham. NCR (National Cycle Route) 5 skirts the village, and the towns of Northwich and Winsford are just a ten minute drive, or fifteen minute cycle ride away.
