Industrious by Nature
With a history of making the most from nature – be it dairy farming, salt mining, weaving silk or, more recently, refining oil – the people of Cheshire have been quietly going about their business as a county for over a thousand years.
We may be less vocal than our neighbours but in many ways that’s what makes Cheshire Cheshire.
With less clamour you’ll find the space to think here. And with all the benefits of a nationally central location, a well-educated population and beautiful scenery it might just be our quality of life that draws you here.
But ‘Industrious by Nature’ is how we describe ourselves because it reflects both sides of Cheshire. While we’re patently rural we’re also the largest exporter within the UK of metal products; you might also be surprised to find that Bentley and Vauxhall cars are manufactured in Cheshire and that the National Nuclear Laboratory is in Warrington.
These and more surprises is what this site is all about, uncovering why Cheshire might be right for you. So please choose a question from the areas covered below as your first step to exploring our county.
