Stockton Heath has a long and interesting history, spanning from the original settlement in Anglo Saxon times, through to the formation of the Parish in 1896.
The Romans made Wilderspool Causeway, London Road and Chester Road as routes for their armies to march along, and these became Warrington’s main trade routes.
Today, Stockton Heath stands a a thriving village, with over 70 shops and thousands of residents.

At the Parish Council meeting held on 9 December, Cllr. Helen Dutton - Chairman advised that after contact by residents a representative from Swan Lifeline had collected the lone CH46 female swan on the evening of 6 December and have taken the swan back to Swan Lifeline, Windsor. The Parish Councillors were aware of the situation and in fact, Cllr. Dutton had contacted both the RSPCA and RSPB for advice and had been visiting Ackers Pit daily to feed / leave water for the swan.
Could residents please in future contact the Parish Council, as owners of Ackers Pit, via the Clerk or the Bailiff for Warrington Anglers Association (WAA) if on site with any concerns. Cllr. Dutton has requested an update from Swan Lifeline on the progress of the swan to advise residents.
