Agden is a small civil parish which, since 2009, has been located in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is the site of Agden Hall. The parish has a parish meeting rather than a parish council. It had a population of 42 as of the 2001 UK census.
Until 1866 Agden was a township in the ancient parish of Malpas.
NOTE: Agden (near Malpas) was once titled Agden (near Whitchurch). Although this is geographically correct, Whitchurch has always been in Shropshire, never in Cheshire. For a time, however, Agden was part of the Whitchurch Registration District.
- The GENUKI and UKBMD pages on Cheshire and its parishes point to many other sources of information on places within the county. The many small parishes and townships that existed before 1866 are treated individually as well as the larger towns and conurbations.
- A Vision of Britain through Time provides a series of maps from the Ordnance Survey illustrating the towns and villages of Cheshire and also the borders between parishes. The following group of maps provide views of the county at various dates, illustrating the changes in administrative structure.
- Cheshire Archives and Local Studies have organized a facility to compare 19th century maps (including tithe maps circa 1830) with modern Ordnance Survey maps. These are available for every civil parish. The detail is very magnified and it is difficult to read any placenames on the older maps. Cheshire Archives and Local Studies are the local keepers of historical material for the county.
