Lying between Runcorn and Warrington is the village of Daresbury in the North of England, a small village famous locally for two things, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and the Daresbury Research Laboratory. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was born here in Daresbury in 1832 and spent his early years in and around Cheshire before his father, an Anglican Minister, took up an appointment in Yorkshire. Charles enjoyed his early life in Daresbury and it is thought that this was the inspiration for his world famous novel “Alice in Wonderland” for the pen name the Charles used was Lewis Carroll. In celebration of his book the local church today boasts a stained glass window depicting many of the characters from his “Alice in Wonderland” book as well as the author himself. The Daresbury Research Laboratory was founded in 1962 and is characterised by its tall tower that dominates the local landscape, the research programme here includes research into chemistry, materials science, engineering and other scientific fields and is primarily for the benefit of academia. The village itself is close to the open Cheshire countryside and this together with its convenient road links accounts for why this is a popular commuter location.
