Until the end of the seventeenth century, what we now call Ellesmere Port was a collection of tiny fishing villages. However the canal system needed outlets into the sea, and this location, at the eastern tip of the Wirral Peninsula, was chosen, and a town and port grew up around it. In the nineteenth century the Manchester Ship Canal was built, and Ellesmere Port marked the starting point of it, and again the port area, and hence the population, shot up.
Although Ellesmere Port is more or less on the Wirral, it is part of Cheshire. Birkenhead is 9 miles (15 km) to the north west and Chester is 6 miles (10 km) to the south. The M56 passes by the town’s south side, and the M53 goes through the town as it joins Chester to Birkenhead and Liverpool via the tunnel. The Warrington to Birkenhead railway also bisects the town.
There is a steady flow of jobs in Ellesmere Port thanks to two major industrial plants on its doorstep. The Stanlow oil refinery is the second largest in the UK and can process up to 12 million tonnes of oil a year, using the excellent transport links and nationwide pipelines to distribute its products. The other major employer is the Vauxhall plant, home of the Astra and the company’s only car plant in the UK. After troubled times in the 80s and 90s, things are looking up. With other industry in the town, a population of 65,000 and Chester and Liverpool just down the road, it’s a busy town at a major UK junction.
