LOCATION Acton lies about half a mile North West on the outskirts of the historic market town of Nantwich. It is a small village mentioned in the Doomsday Book and scene of a battle (1643) in the English Civil War. The site is close to The Star Inn, St Mary's Church and Acton Church of England Primary School (about 1/4 mile distant). Acton is known for Dorfold Hall, a magnificent Jacobean Mansion, believed to have been built on the site of the Manor of Edwin, the last Saxon Earl of Chester, who was a grandson of Lady Godiva. 

NEARBY NANTWICH Nantwich is a charming market town set beside the River Weaver with a rich history, a wide range of over 250 speciality shops and two major supermarkets- Sainsburys and Morrisons. In Cheshire, Nantwich is second only to Chester in its wealth of historic buildings. The High Street has many of the town's finest buildings, including the Queen's Aide House and The Crown Hotel built in 1585. Four major motorways which cross Cheshire ensure fast access to the key commercial centres of Britain and are linked to Nantwich by the A500 Link Road. Manchester Airport, one of Europe's busiest and fastest developing, is within a 45 minute drive of Nantwich. Frequent trains from Crewe railway station link Cheshire to London in approx. 1hr 30min. Manchester and Liverpool offer alternative big city entertainment. Internationally famous football teams, theatres and concert halls are just some of the many attractions. 

NANTWICH SCHOOLS A high demand for properties in the area is mainly due to the two excellent secondary schools (both having a Sixth Form College) & various primary schools that are located within easy travelling distance.
