Things to do in Swettenham, Cheshire
After countless generations of farming the village of Swettenham maintains an agricultural character to this day. The twin focal points of the village are the 13th Century Parish Church and the local pub - The Swettenham Arms. This 16th Century Inn is concealed behind the Parish Church. It was once a nunnery and was used as a resting place for weary funeral parties. It was the custom for them to stay there overnight then take the coffin to the church the following day via an underground tunnel. There are said to have been numerous sightings of the resident ghost over the years!
There is a newly created Lavender and Sunflower meadow in the village. This is in full bloom June/July. There's also an Arboretum and Nature Reserve which is a walker's delight.
This is a remarkably unspoilt village location in which to escape from the stresses of modern life.
