Edwards Grounds - Established 1885

The History

The present Edwards Grounds was established as a result of a merger between the two highly successful and respected businesses of Alfred Grounds and W. Edwards & Company.

Alfred Grounds founded his estate agency and auctioneering business in 1885, in the then busy sailing port of Runcorn. He rapidly built up a reputation for excellent service and expanded his firm into the nearby towns of Widnes and Fordsham.
