Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire

by Veronica

Cheadle Hulme ( Pronounced Hyoom ) is my village and two years ago I wrote a Cheadle Hulme History Walk and took photos. I'd like to show you the historic buildings in my village.

Cheadle Hulme. I have lived here for 36 years and while some areas change with time, my particular part of Cheadle Hulme has changed little because it is part of a conservation area and therefore subject to strict planning permission because of the age.

Cheadle Hulme dates back hundreds of years and I planned a circular walk around the locality passing various refreshment places. I researched the history and loved doing it. Along the walk, there are various stopping points and I asked my husband to walk it and check I had all the directions right. My house was built in about 1912.

Cheadle Hulme means " a water meadow by a clearing in a wood ".

The start

All SAin's Cheadle HUlme I started the walk at a local car park so that people could drive there and then return there to their cars. Otherwise, as the walk is circular it can be started anywhere along the route. All Saint's Church is opposite side of the road to the Carpark .

All Saint’s became a parish in 1868. The church was built in 1862/3, during the Victorian era and then extended in 1878 and 1898. “Lych” was the Anglo Saxon word for a corpse. A lych gate is a gateway covered with a roof found at the entrance of a churchyard where the coffin was rested before the funeral procession entered the church.

Further down the road on the left, is The Church Inn, Cheadle Hulme.

 

The Church Inn

The Church Inn,formerly known as the Knapsack was built towards the end of the 18th Century approx.  1790's  and acquired its original name after landlord named John Brown (Nicknamed The Nap). Opposite The Church Inn is The Governor’s House which used to be a private residence called Ravenoak. It was built in 1882 and rebuilt in 1998. This is on the site of the old Pump House. There was a large pond by the road at this site.

Millington Hall (now the John Millington pub) is a Grade II listed building.  It was constructed in 1683 and was part of the Lane End hamlet of Cheadle Hulme. It was built for Stockport alderman John Millington

Hulme Hall dates back to the Plantagenet era having been constructed around 1419 by the Vernon family. It was extended in 1867.

The Old Fire Station

Near the Hall on  the left before you reach a sharp bend in the road, you will see a large doorway. This was the original Cheadle Hulme Fire Station. The new fire station opened in 1960.

Opposite the Old Fire Station you will see Higham Street, which is a very old part of Cheadle Hulme. The Old Cottage on Higham Street was built during the mid-1500s , approx. Henry V111 time,  and since then has been an inn called the Fox & Grapes, a farmhouse, the Reverend Joshua Brookes’ House and a cottage. The Market Square was situated here when Cheadle Hulme was called Cheadle Moseley.

Thank you . Yes we are very privileged I think. But not everyone appreciates where they live.

So interesting to live in a country where history goes back further than just a couple hundred plus years. And you live in such a quaint place.

Ha yes 1912 makes it newer although there are some newer ones.

TY
There are many interesting places in the North West. I consider myself to be happily situated , within 90 minutes drive of, the beauty of Wales and Welsh border, The English Lake District , The Peak District and many other good features.

Cheadle Hulme is a quiet little backwater and I feel very privileged to step out of my door and see such lovely historic buildings close by. There are many new builds in C/Hulme but I have listed some of the historic ones.

The 1419 house, Hulme Hall, is less than half a mile from my house.
