Heswall

History

The history of Heswall stretches beyond the Doomsday Book where it is listed as 'Eswelle', a derivation of 'Hazel Well'. Right into the nineteenth century was a small village, with a small hamlet centred around St. Peter's Church, with cottages dotted around the heathland.

Heswall began to prosper when wealthy merchants from Liverpool set up holiday retreats because of the spectacular views across the Dee to Wales, and the attractive countryside and the invigorating fresh air.

The 20th century saw great increases in population, with the separate villages if Gayton, Heswall, Pensby, Thingwall and Irby becoming joined by continous housing.

Today

Today, Heswall Upper Village has a lively busy atmosphere during the day and is a haven for diners in the evening. In contrast, the original Lower Village has managed to retain much of its charming, original character.

Spend a delightful afternoon in Heswall, and enjoy the interesting architecture and award winning restaurants.
