More about this scene

The Star Inn has changed little over the years; it even still has its old mounting block attached to the front of the building. The cottage next door is part of the Dorfold Hall estate, which lies between Acton and Nantwich amongst the trees beyond.

Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?

My paternal grandfather, Ernest Charles Chamberlain, proposed to my grandmother Annie Brooks, in the churchyard here. He brought her in his pony and trap, in about 1907. He had an agricultural business, Farmers' Inventions, at Beeston Brook, and he built Osborne House there, and later The Crest, because Osborne was too much for Annie to manage. Annie was from Bunbury - her family lived at Fairview, on the Whitchurch Road.
