History

The Thatch at Faddiley, Nantwich is a popular stop amongst tourists visiting the picturesque county of Cheshire providing both a tremendous example of thatched old England and a welcome break with good traditional home cooking.

Faddiley is just half an hour south of Chester, its origins date to founding of the Roman fortress of Dewa in 70 A.D. Around 584 A.D the Battle of Feathanleag is believed to have taken place on the site of The Thatch in which the British force led by Brochwel Prince of Powys defeated the army of Ceawlin, King of the West Saxons from advancing into Wales.

It is believed that The Thatch was built around 1450 by the Tollemache Family of the Peckforton Estate, originally known as the Tollemarche Arms, the name changed to The Thatch in 1995.

Faddiley is just outside of Nantwich, an exceptionally pretty market town which was nearly destroyed around 1069 by William the Conqueror during the Norman conquest of England.

Later around 1583 the town again came near to total destruction when the Great Fire ravaged Nantwich. Queen Elizabeth I gave generously to rebuild the town which had been a major salt producer.

Today, Nantwich provides a wealth of historic listed buildings of Elizabethan, Victorian and Neo-Classical Georgian architecture.
