| Events in Rossett | 10 Places to Stay

One of the best kept secrets of the North West, the village of Rossett lies just south of the City of Chester which is minutes away by car. The village, despite recent housing developments, retains much of its character with a couple of village shops, three pubs and a good restaurant – not to mention two hotels. With that level of service it’s no wonder that this is a popular location in which to live. This was not always the case, at one time the man route between Shropshire and Chester was through Rossett and it was a village that was usually clogged with traffic – today though there is a by pass and village life is a little more idyllic. The village is set on the fringe of open countryside, the River Alyn running through there and its most famous feature is its mill which was built in 1588 – it fell into terrible disrepair and has been carefully restored by its present owner to its former glory, a much admired feature of the village by visitors and local alike. Rossett does though harbour a dreadful secret, the village green is said to be haunted for it was here that a robber was hanged and sometimes late at night when there is a full moon it is said that he can still be seen wandering around!
