Cronton Hall
Cronton Hall
The name of the township of Cronton is of Saxon origin meaning 'settlement of crows'. It lies within the parish of Farnworth, 7 miles west of Warrington, 5 miles south of Prescot and 4 miles south of St Helen's. The manor formed part of the ancient Barony of Widnes until about 1250 and its lands passed through a succession of owners until the Wright family eventually became sole owners in the mid seventeenth century. Successive generations of the family lived at Cronton Hall until 1821 when it was sold to Mr Bartholomew Bretherton of Rainhill who enlarged the house and grounds. Cronton Hall is a prime example of the 'Queen Anne' style house and is now the centre of the Town End Conservation Area.
