481 Burwardsley

One of Cheshire's hidden villages, Burwardsley lies tucked away behind the Peckforton Hills. Though boasting a pub, church and post office, the primary school is now an Outdoor Pursuits Centre and one might expect to find the village dozing quietly, apart from a few walkers exploring the Sandstone Trail. But though its population is less than 200, there must be often ten times that number of visitors to the famous Candle Workshops, whose hand-carved candles are popular all over the world.
