Little Neston


Little Neston grew up as a settlement around The Green, although the 1960s and 70s saw major expansion with the building of several housing estates.

Today the village has two shopping areas: Town Lane is next to The Green and has a Post Office and a range of other shops including a newsagent, a fast food takeaway, two hairdressers, and an off-licence.

The other shopping area, on West Vale, has a similar variety of shops.

The village also has a doctor’s surgery, clinic and pharmacy in Mellock Lane.

Little Neston has four churches, two primary schools and three pubs: The Royal Oak on The Green, The Lady Hamilton on Henley Road and The Harp on Quayside.

Next to The Green is the Girl Guide headquarters where rainbows, brownies, guides and rangers meet, while the mobile library visits West Vale every other Friday between 11.05 and 11.25 am.

Little Neston is surrounded on all sides by open countryside with many paths suitable for walkers, some of which link up with the Wirral Way.
