Newton Hollows
Newton Hollows
Newton Hollows is a medieval hollow way (or sunken lane) created over hundreds of years by the constant passage of people carts and animals. It originated as the Roman road between the legionary fortress of Chester and the important Roman manufacturing centre at Wilderspool (Warrington).
In the 12th century it was known as the 'Valley of the Demons'. It was thought to be haunted and travellers feared an encounter with the 'Hound of Hell', a 'huge slavering black dog with great white teeth like knives'.
The Hollows today is a 500 metre green corridor and public right of way and has a mix of large trees seasonal undergrowth.
