The Cheshire town of Crewe is home to nearly 70,000 inhabitants and is also a major railway junction and engineering facility for the rail industry.
One of the main employers in the town until recently was the Rolls Royce factory, which had found its home in Crewe for nearly sixty years and is still the exclusive manufacturer of Bentley motor cars.
At present the town centre is set to undergo a major redevelopment programme aimed at modernising and revamping many of the shopping areas and public spaces in Crewe, including the large Queens Park.
One of the town's most famous landmarks is Christ Church, with its imposing tower that dominates the local skyline. Built in the late nineteenth century, the church is home to many fine architectural details as well as a charming walled garden containing many rare and unusual plant species.
