In 1880-02 the church was restored. Pickerings JR and WH are listed as contributing quite generously to the restoration account. 400 (English pounds) was received from Mrs. Pickering to cover “the cost of the window and designs”. Robert Ashley was “Mrs. Pickering’s” brother, and son of Daniel Ashley who built Castle Park House in Frodsham. A Georgian “mansion” now used for the town offices. The park grounds are a popular recreation spot for Frodsham and the former stables and servant quarters now house an Arts Centers.

Thomas Rigby & Son’s Flour Mill at Frodsham Bridge, 1 May 1915. Grain came to the mills by barge. There was a grain elevator capable of lifting 60 tons per hour from the hold of a barge to the top floor of the mill. The flour was distributed by teams of splendid horses, as we see here, and later by Foden Steam wagons.
