Stockton Heath

Stockton Heath has a long and interesting history, spanning from the original settlement in Anglo Saxon times, through to the formation of the Parish in 1896.

The Romans made Wilderspool Causeway, London Road and Chester Road as routes for their armies to march along, and these became Warrington’s main trade routes.

Today, Stockton Heath stands a a thriving village, with over 70 shops and thousands of residents.

Tudor Pole

We were all very saddened last week to learn of the passing away of Tudor Pole. Although now retired, Tudor was a Stockton Heath Parish Councillor for many years.  He worked tirelessly for the residents he represented dealing with many issues to improve the environment of our village. Even in retirement he was still active and helped persuade the PC to support the planting of trees on the bank of the brook to enhance the outlook on Chadwick Ave/Willow Drive.

Tudor’s main and lasting achievement was to start the Stockton Heath festival. Almost single handed, ten years ago, he convinced the PC it could be done and to provide the first grant of money to get the project moving to become what is now the major event of the year for the Village.  

Just recently, Tudor was made an honorary Freeman of Stockton Heath to recognise his achievements. Tudor was a kind person and passionate for what he believed in. He was an inspiration to all who knew and worked with him. He will be greatly missed.
