What actually created Ellesmere Port was the construction by Telford and Jessop of the Ellesmere Canal, which at a stroke connected up the rivers Severn, Mersey and Dee at Whitby Locks. Although the Severn connection was left unfinished, Ellesmere Port was the result.
This area of Cheshire was actually settled long before that, with the Domesday Book of the 11th Century mentioning several villages and hamlets here, but the Industrial Revolution really brought the place to life and prosperity. It was in the 18th and 19th centuries that all the dockside houses, workshops and industrial buildings went up. The National Waterways Museum in Dock Street - the town's first main street - is an excellent place to start exploring this great heritage. It's easy to find from any nearby Cheshire hotel or bed and breakfast accommodation.
Ellesmere Port is beautifully situated close to the M53 and M56 motorways, and it also has railway and bus stations, so this is still a well-connected town these days. From your Cheshire hotel or guesthouse base you can easily get to the Peak District or the North Wales Hills if you feel in the mood, or indeed take a ferry across the Mersey to see Liverpool.
Cheshire is a county of rolling farmlands, market towns and, of course, cheese production! However, not many visitors appreciate before they come here that Cheshire also played a crucial role in the Industrial Revolution and was a centre for salt production, with railways and canals snaking their way across the landscape to cater for demand in all sorts of wares. Ellesmere Port is a case in point, on the Wirral Peninsula and just eight miles from Chester, the county town. It was built on the banks of the famous Manchester Ship Canal, and also marks the spot where the Shropshire Union Canal ended. This was a place of heavy industry that helped secure Britain's leading place in the world for decades to come, and when you stay at a Shropshire hotel here you'll have a lot of fascinating things to see.
