History

Historically, Churton was split down the middle and divided into two different ecclesiastical parishes meaning that parishioners living north of the village were to attend St John The Baptist Church in Aldford, while those living in the south were expected to worship at St Chad’s Church in Farndon.

In 1864 the Eaton Estate built a village school which subsequently became a mission hall for St John the Baptist Church. The school hall now serves the community as the village hall.

Churton is no longer divided along ecclesiastical lines and the village now has its own parish boundaries and a parish council which meets monthly in the village hall.

Churton once supported its own brass band, football team and two pubs. The Grade II listed Red Lion still stands but is now a private home.
