Alkrington

ONCE rolling farmland, Alkrington first established itself as a prime site for residential development at the beginning of the last century. First came the establishment of the Alkrington Garden village which swiftly expanded, and became the home of some of the most desirable properties in the town.

Alkington Hall, once home of the Lever family and Britain's first natural history museum, still dominates the hill in the middle of Alkrington Woods, one of the most popular recreation areas in the town.
