Calveley is a village and civil parish which, since 2009, has been located in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. The village lies 5½ miles to the northwest of Nantwich. The parish also includes parts of the settlements of Barrets Green and Wardle Bank. Nearby villages include Alpraham, Bunbury, Haughton and Wardle. Calveley Chapel stands in Calveley village. The Shropshire Union Canal, A51 and the Crewe–Chester railway line all run along the southwestern boundary of the parish. According to the 2001 census, the parish had a population of 269.
Prior to 1866 Calveley was a township in the ancient parish of Bunbury. There is a sketchmap of the ancient parish on the Bunbury page.
- 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.
