The Sibbersfield Hall estate is located around 7 miles south of Chester, just outside the village of Churton-by-Farndon in Cheshire. A house has stood on the site for almost 200 years, but the current, brick-built mansion was constructed in the 1850s. During its 150 year long history, the Hall and estate have been home to countless families and undergone some significant changes and modernisation. This website aims to chronicle the life and times of these inhabitants and to create a permanent record of the history of the estate, which can evolve and develop alongside the property for the future.The website is divided into chronological periods of ownership and also includes information on world events occuring at the time, to provide some context to the lives of previous owners.
Can You Help ?
We are very keen to add stories and particulary old photos/film of Sibbersfield. We have only have a few photographs of the estate before 1975, if you know of any please contact David Williams here. Any photographs available will be scanned and returned to you.
In particular we know a film/video of the gardens at Sibbersfield was made during the 1930s.This was in the possession of the late Mr Bob Sandbach of Sibbersfield Lane (Bob was the brother in law of Eva Youde) but the film has sadly gone missing.
We are also keen to trace a portrait of Joseph Parker who built the current Hall (died 1888).
If you have a copy of the film/video or know the current location of the portrait, we would be delighted to hear from you.
