St Bartholomew's Church, Thurstaston
St Bartholomew's Church, Thurstaston
The parish of Thurstaston, fifteen miles west of Chester and seven miles south of Birkenhead, includes some of the highest ground in the Wirral Peninsula. The Church lies quietly in the middle of the village of Thurstaston, which unlike many of the surrounding villages remains unspoilt.'Turstanetone' is recorded in the Domesday Book as being held by Robert de Rodelent (or Rhuddlan), a cousin of Hugh, the nephew of William I. Hugh surnamed Lupus, but called by the Welsh 'The Fat', was created Earl of Chester and gave Thurstaston to Robert along with many other lands in the Wirral and as much as he could conquer in North Wales. The earliest mention of a Church occurs about 1125 but there could have been another church here in Saxon times.
