Dutton  Cheshire

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Dutton like this:

DUTTON, a township in Great Budworth parish, Cheshire; on the river Weaver, the Grand Trunk canal, and the Grand Junction railway, 5½ miles NW of Northwich. Acres, 2, 076. Real property, £4, 035. Pop., 442. Houses, 53. It was known at Domesday as Duntune; and it belonged to the ancient family of Dutton, who had jurisdiction over the minstrels and pipers of the county. ...


Dutton Hall was built in 1513 by the Duttons; and remains of it exhibit fine features of the architecture of its period. A viaduct of 20 arches, each 63 feet in span, and 60 feet high, takes the Grand Junction railway over Dutton Bottom, across the valley of the Weaver. A workhouse for Runcorn district was recently erected in Dutton.
