Tarporley Parish is located in the local authority area of Cheshire West and Chester in rural Cheshire and the village is considered to be one of the county’s most attractive villages. Tarporley is located about 11 miles (17.5 km) from Chester and 10 miles (16 km) from Nantwich. The Parish extends over 510 hectares and has a population of 2,614 in 1,176 households (2011 Census) largely concentrated in the village of Tarporley itself, with a few scattered farms and smaller settlements including Birch Heath in the wider Parish area.

Where does the name come from?

Tarporley is located near the site of a prehistoric settlement. It is listed in the Domesday Book as “Toepelei”, which has been interpreted from Old English as meaning “a pear wood near a hill”.  This is why the Tarporley Church of England Primary School has a pear tree as its emblem.

In 1066, it was owned by Wulfgeat of Madeley and was worth £1 but 20 years later, under the ownership of Gilbert the hunter, Tarporley’s value had fallen to £0.50.

You can see the Tarporley entry in the Domesday Book here.
