Parish History

WYBUNBURY (St. Chad), is a parish, in the union and hundred of Nantwich, South division of the county of Chester; it is 3½ miles (E. S. E.) from Nantwich. The parish consists of the townships of Basford, Batherton, Blakenhall, Bridgemere, Checkley with Wrinehill, Chorlton, Doddington, Hatherton, Hough, Hunsterson, Lea, Rope, Shavington with Gresty, Stapeley, Walgherton, Weston, Wybunbury, and part of Willaston.[1]


WYBUNBURY Wybunbury (pronounced Wi-ben-bree) was a township in Wybunbury Parish, Nantwich Hundred  and included the hamlets of Blakelow (part), Clannor Heath, Daisy Hill, The Flag, Haymoor Green (part), Howbeck Bank (part) and Pinfold.

Wybunbury, St. Chad was an ancient parish church, originally serving the townships of Basford, Batherton, Blakenhall, Bridgemere, Checkley cum Wrinehill, Chorlton (near Crewe), Doddington, Hatherton, Hough, Hunsterson, Lea (near Crewe), Rope, Shavington cum Gresty, Stapeley, Walgherton, Weston (near Crewe), Willaston (part) and Wybunbury. 

The leaning tower of the former church of St Chad, also known as the 'Leaning Tower of South Cheshire' and the 'Hanging Steeple of Wimberie', is located in Wybunbury village. The 29.3 m tower is all that remains of a late fifteenth century church demolished in 1833. (Later churches, replacing the fifteenth century one, were also demolished in 1892 and 1977.) The tower was stabilised using underexcavation by James Trubshaw in 1832; this is the earliest known application of the technique, which was also used to stabilise the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

The parish also includes the lowland raised bog of Wybunbury Moss, a National Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest. The bog is the setting for the children's book, Nellie Longarms Will Get You... If You Don't Watch Out, by John Bailey and Rose Quigley.

Wybunbury is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. The village lies 3¼ miles to the south east of Nantwich and 3¾ miles to the south of Crewe. The parish also includes the settlements of Clannor Heath, Daisy Hill, The Flag, Pinfold and parts of Blakelow, Haymoor Green and Howbeck Bank. Nearby villages include Hough, Shavington, Stapeley and Walgherton. The A51 runs east–west through the south-western corner of the parish.
