This archive consists of 73 reports detailing the results of a survey of Cheshire's historic towns, funded by English Heritage and carried out by Cheshire County Council during the period 1997-2001.

In total the survey covered 37 historic towns in the unitary authorities of Cheshire East, Cheshire West and Chester, Halton and Warrington.

In 2013, drawing on a decade of archaeological investigations in the town of Middlewich, the Cheshire Archaeology Planning Advisory Service in partnership with Cheshire East Council commissioned Round House Archaeological Services to revise the Assessment and Strategy reports originally written in 2003.

The survey comprised of two parts:

  • Part 1 of the survey was an Assessment of the archaeological and historical evidence for the origin, growth and development of each of the county's historic towns.
  • Part 2 of the survey was the formulation of a Strategy for the planning, conservation and management of the archaeological resource of each town.

The archive contains three categories of report:

  • District Introductions
  • Assessment Reports
  • Strategy Reports

A full list of the reports contained within this collection is available in pdf format at the top of the Downloads page.
