copied from Greater Manchester County Record Office at:
This township or civil parish was in Lancashire. It was in Winwick ecclesiastical parish and in Leigh poor law Union. It should not be confused with the Culcheth area in Newton township, Manchester. It had four ancient, ill-defined quarters, called CULCHETH (in the north), HOLCROFT (in the east), PEASFURLONG (in the west) and RISLEY (in the south). In 1933 the civil parish was dissolved and its area divided between Golborne Urban District (Culcheth), Croft civil parish (Holcroft, Peasfurlong and part of Risley areas) and Woolston civil parish (remaining part of Risley area).
In 1974, Croft, Woolston and the Culcheth and Newchurch wards of Golbourne Urban District, i.e. including the whole of the area of the former civil parish of Culcheth, became part of Warrington District, Cheshire.
