Daresbury, Cheshire

The father of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1898) was vicar at All Saints, Daresbury. Carroll was born at the Old Parsonage, Morphany Lane, Newton-by-Daresbury, and lived there until 1843. The house burned down in 1883. Only the gateposts remain. Another source says the site, on Glebe Farm, has a pillar and a plaque. There is a commemorative window in the church, and a 'Wonderland' weathervane, showing the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and Alice, on the local primary school.


The Sessions House and adjoining barn are to be restored as an exhibition centre by the Lewis Carroll Birthplace Trust.
