Threapwood


Threapwood

Threapwood is a small village in Cheshire, England. It is close to the villages of Shocklach, Worthenbury and Malpas. The name is reputed to have derived from the Old English 'Threap' meaning to beat, thrash or cheat. It is rumoured that in history, Threapwood fell between, but outside of the control of 3 parishes and as such, was the home to brigands, ruffians, illegitimate children and women of loose repute.
