Hoole Village


Hoole Village

Hoole Village is a civil parish situated near to Chester, in Chester District, Cheshire, England. In 2004 its population was 230. [Latham, p.9.]

The parish contains the southern end of the M53 motorway where it becomes the A55 road. At this point it is crossed by the A56 road. Also in the village is Hoole Hall, which is now a hotel.

History

In September 1955 a prehistoric arrowhead and a worked flake were found in a garden in the parish. The arrowhead was dated to the period between the Early Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age (2350 BC to 701 BC). In 1995 aerial photography showed evidence of a Roman practice fort near to Hoole Hall. It is believed that the Roman road from Chester to Wilderspool (now part of Warrington) passed through the parish. [Latham, pp.10–14.]
