The Arley Estate
Arley is a place of enormous character, charm and interest. Visitors are frequently struck by the warm and intimate atmosphere and the feeling that Arley is a much-cherished family home.
The Gardens, which are amongst the finest in Britain, are outstanding for their vitality, variety and historical interest and are particularly celebrated for the magnificent double herbaceous border. The Hall is an impressive example of a Victorian country house built in the Elizabethan style.

This website illuminates life and work in a country house in Cheshire in the period 1750–1790 by making available some of the extraordinarily detailed accounts and documents that survive at Arley. Over six thousand original receipted invoices have been scanned and fully indexed in a database to show names of suppliers, occupations of suppliers, goods and services provided and either the location of suppliers or the place where the work was done.
Forming a unique resource of invaluable primary evidence for historians, researchers, authors and students, the archive has already provided the basis for four books by Charles F Foster, available mail-order.
