Anderton is known for the Victorian Anderton Boat Lift, which was the model for other European boat lifts. It is fully restored and raises boats 50 feet (15 m) from the River Weaver to the Trent and Mersey Canal.
Anderton was one of the townships of the parish of Great Budworth. For more information, see the parish.
The civil parish included the hamlets of Daisy Bank, Gunners Clough (part), and Soot Hill. The population was 191 in 1801, 251 in 1851, 360 in 1901, and 424 in 1951. ((Source: GENUKI)
In 1988 it was combined with the neighbouring parish of Marbury (near Northwich) to form the new ward or civil parish of Anderton with Marbury.
- 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.
