Hard at work!


  • What is Frodsham pictures?

    Frodsham pictures is a website that that began in 2004. Back then it was known as 'frodsham-pics.co.uk'.

    In 2009 it became frodshampictures.co.uk during Frodsham's 800yr anniversary and showcased many pictures and videos of the town's celebrations in Castle Park

    The site then languished between 2010 and 2018 with little update and became run down and full of woodworm. Then in 2019 a new project was launched thanks to investment (of a few quid) from the sanstone.group and ourown producer's credit card.

    A team of professionals (never done a day's work in their lives) and a quartet of highly trained mice were assembled at a small office in Preston Brook over the winter months of 2019 to design, develop and publish a brand new website. We were told to 'keep it simple'. We tried that but wordpress proved clunky and full of holes requiring plugins. So we adapted a minified javascript, html 5 with 'Ajax dynamic pushstates' (whatever that is) and colour to produce a site that just might work. The result was Frodshampictures.com, a site we launched in January 2020.

    The project and this website is just a 'bit of fun' and you shouldn't take us seriously. We certainly don't! But we do remain passionate about Frodsham, the buildings, parklands and of course, the people. We're all proud of our town of Frodsham and we all love living here and that's got nothing to do with all the pubs being here either! Of course for those of you that are not lucky enough to live in Frodsham, we do offer you this site, together with its many pictures, sights, sounds and smells. Ok, maybe not the smells. We'll reserve that for our Ellsmere port site! (only joking).

  • What is the purpose of Frodsham pictures?

    Our objective was simply to showcase the many historic buildings and the environment of Frodsham, with a dash of history and archive sprinkled on top. Somewhere in there is the need to have fun building it and trying out new ways to capture and showcase pictures of Frodsham.


  • Who owns Frodsham pictures?

    Frodsham pictures is a privately owned website. It's registered to someone who has lived in Frodsham for over twenty-four years and is only just beginning to understand the bus timetables.
