A history of Stockton Heath
Locally Important Buidings

Stockton Heath has a very long and varied history. There has been a settlement here since Anglo-Saxon times and ‘The Heath’ was made an important resting place for the marching Roman armies. It was also a camp

for both armies in the civil war.


The Romans made Wilderspool Causeway, London Road and Chester Road as routes for their armies to march along. Thereafter used as the main trade routes in and out of Warrington.


In the early 1800’s (1805 – 1808 ‘ish) a house stood at the corner of London Road and Walton Road which was the home of Edward Fenna and his family who was the Parish Constable. Outside the house were the Parish Stocks (removed 1850). The house was called the “Stone Jug”.


In 1894 an Act of Parliament set up local Parish Councils. Stockton Heath was part of the township of Appleton. Two years later Stockton Heath formed its own Parish Council and one of its first jobs was to rename ‘Pigeon Bank’ as ‘Victoria Square’ after Queen Victoria.
