Welcome to the Village

This website has been created by the Parish Council to give you an insight into the villages of the Parish, details of what they have to offer in the way of amenities and useful information about the Parish Council itself.


We also hope that the web site will give you a taste of what it is like to live in the area. We believe that in providing this information you will be able to access any practical information you require about the local area. It will also help you become more involved with a wide range of village activities and to enjoy being part of a very special way of life.

The parish of Daresbury, Moore and Preston Brook is located in North Cheshire some 20 miles from Chester and 4 miles from Warrington. It is situated within the Weaver Vale constituency. The Parish was formed in 1885 and is one of the 17 that comprise the Borough of Halton.

There are three main settlements in the Parish, Daresbury, Moore and Preston Brook. The villages are surrounded by hills and heaths, woods and fields, connected by an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways.
