Add Bunbury to your Itinerary

Nr Nantwich
Narrowboat Hire - Situated on the Shropshire Union Canal


Bunbury is a delightful village with many old cottages and narrow winding lanes, and several other characteristic features including Bunbury Watermill, which can still be visited today. Home to the impressvie Church of Saint Bonifiace and a monument of Sir George Beeston, Bunbury makes an ideal stopping off place for country walks with several characteristic pubs and local amenities.

Bunbury was also been used as the location for Home Fires (known in the series as Great Paxford), a drama shown for two series on ITV. The drama followed a group of inspirational women in a rural Cheshire community as they dealt with the shadow of World War II casting a dark cloud over their lives.

Home Fires was inspired by the non-fiction book ‘Jambusters’ written by Julie Summers.
