About Dodcott-cum-Wilkesley.

The parish of Dodcott-cum-Wilkesley is the most southerly parish in the county of Cheshire in North West England. It is a rural area with dairy farming being the predominant feature of the landscape. The parish adjoins the county of Shropshire to the west and south and is in the triangle between Whitchurch and Market Drayton in Shropshire and Nantwich in Cheshire. The nearest settlement for shops and services is Audlem to the east which lies on the Shropshire Union Canal. Within the parish are the villages and hamlets of Burleydam, Combermere, Royals Green, Lightwood Green, Wilkesley and Shavington (part). The parish has only 350 names on the electoral register but is the largest parish in Cheshire in terms of area.

In the bottom L.H.corner is a road entering and driving North North -East. The entrance to Dodcott Grange is a right hand turn from this road. A little further up this road is a single house on the right-hand side long before the next T junction. This is No.11 Lodmore Lane.

Red dotted lines are parish boundaries and this house lies within the old parish of Dodcott-cum-Wilkesley. The map is enlargeable. North-North-West of Audlem itself is the local cemetery which is on the banks of the Shropshire Union Canal

The above modern map of the area is courtesy

The local Church of England was in Wrenbury,about 3 miles north and is pictured below. The parish records were held here.
