Laskey Farm


Laskey Farm is a hidden gem. Our offices are in a superb position but tucked away in a rural setting. The existing farm buildings have been carefully and tastefully converted to provide high quality offices in a superb setting.
Some of the offices overlook the delightful pond in a courtyard setting others have views over open countryside and some even overlook the award winning Laskey Farm Gardens!
It is a fantastic place to work with a variety of different sized offices suitable for a small business to larger two storey offices, all are available to let on flexible terms. The location in Thelwall near Warrington, Cheshire is ideal for the M6, M56 and M62 close to Manchester, Manchester Airport & Liverpool Airport.

History of Laskey Farm

Laskey Lane fell into disuse in the 1890's with the cutting of the Manchester Ship Canal which re-routed the Mersey to the north and made the bridge obsolete
(the rotted posts of the old bridge are still visible in the Mersey). The Canal is crossed by a penny ferry located in Ferry Lane at the end of the Laskey footpath.

In 2001 Councillor Mawer approached the Platt family on behalf of Warrington Borough Council and with the help of a £40,000 grant the southern part of Laskey Lane
leading to the canal was restored as a permissive bridleway. This means that horse riders are now able to access the picturesque canal banks and it has become a further amenity for the Laskey Farm resident businesses.

Laskey Farm was originally part of the large Stanton Estate (the Stanton Manor House is now Chaigeley School) and was constructed in the mid 1700s. The farm buildings predate the house and recent building work has revealed the existence of a smaller farmhouse on the site of the current building.
The farm was occupied as a tenant by John Cooke (the present owner's Great Grandfather) until 1928 when his son-in-law George Platt purchased it for £1,000 from the Stanton family. Laskey Farm operated as a working farm until the 1950's when Arthur Platt started the process of developing the farm buildings as commercial premises. Reminders of the farming past are everywhere with the surviving buildings, as far as possible, being named after their original uses.

All of the original farm buildings once had the sandstone roofs common throughout 17th century Cheshire , these were extremely thick heavy slabs and only one such roof at Laskey Farm now remains. Next to the entrance of the Shippon (Cheshire name for cattle barn) are two cattle troughs each carved from a single piece of sandstone. These are the only surviving Laskey Farm troughs and are well over two hundred years old. The present owner remembers his father selling off about thirty of these troughs in the 1960s for £6 each!
