One of Cheshire’s hidden gems

Audlem was recently featured along with Pickmere in a TV programme to find the nation’s village of the year. Many people in the country had never even heard of it before, but for the locals of South Cheshire and North Shropshire, the border village is one of the county’s best kept secrets.

 

While Audlem wasn’t successful in its bid to win the village of the year competition, it has won many awards in the past, including: a Best Kept Village and a Cheshire Community Pride Award.

 

The village lies a few miles from the border of Cheshire and Shropshire and just seven miles south of Nantwich. The River Weaver runs nearby and the Shropshire Union Canal runs right through the centre of the village, making it a popular place for boater and walkers.

 

Photographers also love Audlem, in fact the winner of our 2017 Cheshire Life reader photo competition was a shot of the Shropshire Union Canal in Audlem taken by Sylvia Davis. Proof in itself that Audlem is an award winning location for taking photos.

 

We would love to see your photos of Audlem, upload them to the Cheshire Life reader photo gallery.
