Cuddington is a
civil parishand rural village in the Vale Royalborough of Cheshire, England, about six miles west of Northwichand fourteen miles east of Chester.
Within the civil parish of Cuddington are two villages: Cuddington and
Sandiway. The civil parish was created in 1935.
The name Cuddington is Anglo Saxon and derives from The Tun of Cuda which translates to The People of Cuda. Cuddington was designated as a township in the 7th Century AD when the then
Archbishop of Canterbury(Theodore) introduced the parochial system within the Parish of Weaverham. Cuddington's church was first set up as a chapel of ease, to save people having to walk all the way to Weaverham every Sunday. In ancient times the village was famed for its medicinal spring that has since been lost.
Nowadays Cuddington is a mainly residential village popular for its peaceful rural location and good transport links. The village is surrounded by fields and woodland with many public footpaths and the nearby ancient
Delamere Forestis popular with walkers and cyclists. With a station on the railway linking Chesterwith Manchesterand situated on the crossing of two main trunk roads, Cuddington is within easy reach of the nearby cities and the UK motorway network.
The Wilbraham family lived in the area in Delamere House from 1784-1939. Where this house once stood is now known as
Delamere Parkwhich is now a prominent housing estate.
