Croston is a small, beautiful riverside conservation village, which lies to the West
of Chorley towards Southport. The area is full of traditional English, terraced cottages,
bright flowers and is the home of The Grapes, a warm welcoming pub.
The name of this village means 'Town of the Cross'. This name was given to commemorate
a 7th Century Wayside cross which was used by the Celtic missionaries who brought
Christianity to the North of England. The original cross is no longer there and it
is thought to have gone in Cromwell's time. A new cross was placed in the village

Croston is very traditional village, full of character, with cobbled paths, cricket
fields and village greens (which are the venues for the annual May Day madness and
Bastille Day). It is a colourful, tranquil place to live. There are tea rooms, traditional
olde worlde nick nack shops, antiques shops and a country post office. And of course
there is the finest cuisine at The Grapes.
