The Wirral village of Barnston is now part of Merseyside, but from the time of Domesday (1066) till the Local Government reorganisation of 1974 it was part of the historical County of Cheshire.

I grew up in Fox & Hounds and have lived in Barnston nearly all my life.  This website is the result of years of collecting old photos, postcards and bits of historical information about the village.    I hope in time to add further links to the historical information  on the left with articles on transport, farming the Black Death, World Wars  etc.,  the Countryside page will eventually have walks which will introduce you to the history and the vcillage.  I hope  you will find something of interest  whether you live in Barnston now, or have past connections with the village. 

The new Links page, as of March 2007 will have have short cuts to sites which will hopefully be relevant to locals & visitors.
