Daresbury Village, the birthplace of famous author, Lewis Carroll
Daresbury Village is a picturesque place and it's well worth spending a few hours here just wandering around. The village is situated in the lovely Cheshire countryside and is renowned as the birth place of Lewis Carroll who wrote the famous children's book 'Alice's adventures in wonderland'.
The lovely Grade 11* listed parish church has an impressive stained glass window devoted to the life of the author and with the help of Heritage Lottery funding, it has now opened an elegant visitor centre attached to the church which gives an insight into Lewis Carroll's interesting life.
There is a pub in the village, the 'Ring O' Bells', which serves good food and for those who wish to linger longer, the Daresbury Park hotel is a few minutes drive away.
Daresbury village is just off junction 11 of the M56 motorway. Leave the M56 at junction 11, and take the A56 (dual carriageway) towards Warrington.
Pass the Daresbury Park Hotel and Business Park on the left. Take the second road on the right, to Daresbury. Turn left opposite the pub, towards the church.
The car park is on the left, just before the churchyard.
