(a few reviews from 1 attraction)
Davenham is a rural village and civil parish approximately 3km south of the town of Northwich, part of the Borough of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire in England. It has a population of 5,655, reducing following reorganisation to 2,745 at the 2011 Census. The village is close to the A556 and A533 roads and both the River Dane and River Weaver. It is the birthplace of marathon runner Paula Radcliffe.HistoryDavenham is recorded in the Domesday Book as Devenham. Its name means "hamlet on the River Dane". The site of the Norman Shipbrook Castle by the river Dane is indicated by the name of Castle Hill, between Shipbrook Bridge, and Shipbrook Hill Farm, but no traces now remain.In 1936 the whole of Eaton (near Davenham) and part of Leftwich civil parish (which extended into Davenham village) was added to Davenham, and in 1955 part of Davenham was added to Northwich civil parish.Between 1996 and 2006 a large housing development was built on farmland to the north west of the village centre. The estate is known as Kingsmead and is separated from the historic village of Davenham by the A556, Northwich bypass. This area was originally the Kingsmead ward of the civil parish with five members representing the ward on Davenham Parish council. It has now formed a separate parish with its own Parish Council. In 2006 the Kingsmead Residents Association was formed by residents who were concerned at the state of maintenance of the public areas of the estate. By Easter 2007 the Kingsmead Residents Association had expanded to have over 500 members and has expanded its interests to cover topics such as litter on the estate, speeding on the main spine and loop roads and the adoption of the estate's roads by the County Council, in addition to the Association's primary aim which is to take over the Estate Management company responsible for the upkeep of the public areas of the estate.
