About Ellesmere Port

Ellesmere Port is a large industrial town and port in Cheshire. It is situated South of Wirral on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, and to the north of the city of Chester. According to the 2001 census, the town had a population of 64,100.

The town of Ellesmere Port was founded as an outlet to the sea from Ellesmere, Shropshire and Wales' border area around Llangollen via a canal initially called the Ellesmere Canal.

In recent times, it has had an influx of Liverpool immigrants. Thus demand for housing increased with the opening of the Vauxhall Motors car plant in 1962.
