About this photo
Grappenhall, or 'Gropenhale' (as it was then called), has the distinction of being recorded in the Domesday Survey of 1086. Bypassed by the Bridgewater canal, the cobbled village centre has retained much of its quaint atmosphere. Perhaps Frith's photographer sought refreshment at the imposing sandstone Ram's Head Hotel. Note the sundial set high above the door.
