Overton (Frodsham) Hill

View from the top

Standing some 443ft above sea-level is Overton Hill.

In the early 1920's several local landowners gave adjoining plots of land to Parish Council to be held in trust for the site of the memorial erected in memory of the men of Frodsham who gave the lives in the war. A further condition was that there should be an open space for the use and enjoyment of the people of Frodsham for ever.

The war memorial that stands at the top of the hill is visible from almost everywhere in the town and many residents still fondly remember the helter-skelter that was demolished in 1977.
