Canal at Coxbank

I'm curious about the history of Coxbank.

There's something about the village which is different to the typical Cheshire village. Did it grow up around a particular cottage industry?

It's easy to see why Audlem grew, around the crossroads and the canal and later the railway.

But what was the reason for Coxbank's existence?

Editor adds: If anyone has points to make that will answer John's query, we will be delighted to publish the information.
