Dates for your diary
History of Darnhall Two young oak trees now stand at the centre of Cheshire, next to the Village Hall, in the historic area of Darnhall. There was an Abbey here in the 13th Century when monks walked the lanes and paths and saw young oak trees in the hedgerows and woods. Those small oaks are now majestically grown to great heights and take pride of place in the village. The monks may have walked into history, but their legacy has been left in the landscape. In later times the lawn of the great Hall covered the Abbey's site, and the carriages bringing the high and mighty that turned in front of the Hall could not know that their horses were stamping on the ruins of a history that stretched back into the Middle Ages. And into the future and a small microwave dish, part of the great Jodrell Bank complex, nestles in those same woods and receives signals from the stars that left their planets for us many centuries ago. So Darnhall is both the Centre of Cheshire, and the Centre of the Universe! That's the thing about Darnhall - history is all around you. From the farms and their buildings, from the people and their lengthy memories, to the modern houses and renovated cottages, Darnhall encompasses everything that an English village is recognised for - continuity, community, and comradeship.
