http://www.parkgateheritagetrail.org/home/ describes the buildings on the trail; the pages can be accessed directly from a mobile phone using the QR codes displayed on the buildings. A heritage trail booklet is also available, which provides an accompanying narative about the buildings. We have a large number of listed and historic buildings in Parkgate, and hope to include more of these buildings into this trail in the future.

The origins of Parkgate can be traced back to the former Neston Park, which was created as a deer park in about 1250. Since then, the fortune of Parkgate has been determined to a great extent by changes in the River Dee, on whose estuary Parkgate stands.
A brief history of Parkgate can be read on our pages "Parkgate History". There is a wide range of books and other published material written about Parkgate, and a list containing some of these can be found on our "Further Reading" page. Some of these have been written by members of the Parkgate Society.
For a small community, Parkgate has some of the finest eating and drinking establishments in Cheshire, boasting award winning restaurants and not one, but two, award winning ice cream shops. The fish & chip restaurant and take-away is also a great visitor attraction as well. A full list of these establishments and more can be found on the "Traders" page.
As well as the heritage trail walk, there are a number of general walks in Parkgate that take in the scenery of the estuary and its marsh, and the surrounding countryside. A map and brief details of some selected routes can be found on our "Short Walks" page.
There is more information about Parkgate and the surrounding area on the Parkgate page of the Neston Community website, together with a list of local organisations and other useful links. We also maintain close links with Neston Town Council, Neston Civic Society and Burton & Neston History Society. For more information about Park Fields, visit www.friendsofparkfields.org.
