- Chester Castle (civil parish)
Chester Castle Civil parish Status: Parish Population: 0 Main settlements: none Administration Primary council: Cheshire West and Chester County: Cheshire Region: North West Coordinates: Coordinates: Politics UK Parliament: City of Chester European Parliament: North West England
The parish is bounded by Castle Drive to the south, Grosvenor Street (the A483) to the west, and Castle Street and St Mary's Hill to the east. Apart from the castle/prison, the parish also includes the Crown Courts, County Hall, and the Cheshire Military Museum. In April-May 1966, the infamous Moors murders case was tried at Cheshire Crown Court.
It was part of the Chester Rural District, despite being in the middle of the city, and did not form part of Chester County Borough. This meant that County Hall was actually in the administrative county of Cheshire which it administered. The Local Government Act 1972 saw it become part of Chester District, along with the rest of Chester Rural District. Since April 2009 County Hall has been the headquarters of the Cheshire West and Chester Council.
