About us

  • What is Frodsham pictures?

    Frodsham pictures is a gallery site dedicated to promoting the town of Frodsham through the photographic capture of its historic buildings and parklands.

    We started this site back in 2004 under the domain name of 'frodsham-pics.co.uk'. This was later to become 'frodshampictures.co.uk' in 2009 and then 'frodshampictures.com' in 2020.

  • Who owns Frodsham pictures?

    Frodsham pictures is a privately owned website. There is no commercial gain or profit made from the site.

    Any site links to local websites are referenced simply because they relate to activites, information services, events, clubs or businesses operating in and around Frodsham.

  • What happened to the frodshampictures.co.uk site?

    The site is archived on our server. The site was replaced as the application was slow and used old insecure software such as flash and shockwave. The old domain name will continue to re-direct you here and will automatically update any previous browser bookmarks.

    Technical bit

    The website now uses:

    • Cached pages (updated every 4 hours);
    • Fast page loads with Ajax menues and html5 pushstate;
    • javascript, css and plugins served from JSDelivr;
    • Website preload;
    • Node.js; and
    • Responsive compatibility with all mobile devices and smartTV's.

    The site is distributed globally through Cloudflare's 150 world-wide servers offering firewall endpoint security, service resilience and page caching which means that the time is takes to load this page in Australia is the same as the UK.

    Kelsterbach, Germany ('Twinned town' of Frodsham)

    Over the years we have received previous visitor comments from Candada, US, Australia, Germany, Thailand and Sweden, mainly from ex-pats who had grown up in Frodsham or who have (or had) family living in Frodsham.

    We've also had webite visits from Germany. Perhaps from web-surfers in the town of Kelsterbach wanting to know what their twinned-town of Frodsham, UK looks like?

    Not quite the Manchester ship canal.
