Ellesmere Port Local History Pages

This site is an on-going local history project researched and compiled by Year 9 pupils of the Whitby High School under the guidance of Mike Royden. It is researched each year around November, but updated throughout the year. Topics include studies of the suburbs and villages around Ellesmere Port, eg. Great Sutton, Little Sutton, Capenhurst, Overpool, Whitby, plus local sites such as Poole Hall, Whitby Hall, and the Temporary Government Housing Programme (1944-49) Prefab site known as 'Tin Town', Hooton Hall and Hooton Airfield. A newly designed site will be online by October/November 2007.
