Verdin Exchange

This is a great photo, taken in the early 2000s, I think.


The picture shows the Verdin Exchange which was built in 1895 as Verdin Technical School which eventually became Winsford Verdin Grammar School.

These days the buildings are used as bases for businesses.

The land behind it now includes a nursery. There are also football pitches and the fair visits there every year. In the picture taken, there are some travellers.

As you move up the picture you will see Winsford Fire Station and the Cheshire Fire Headquarters.

You can see the River Weaver at the top left.

On the right of the picture you’ll see the Civic Hall and the junction which was upgraded (at a cost of £2.5million, in 2012. It too five months.

  1. Could I have permission to use the Verdin Exchange photo please. I went to the Verdin Grammar School, and I have a facebook page for memories about the school.

  2. The upgraded junction at grange lane/dene drive has made no difference to traffic. It was allegedly completed to lure a supermarket to the site. Obviously that never happened. Ive heard rumours that the verdin exchange will be demolished and then the Guildhall? More housing? More traffic at that junction! Actually the Guildhall is a grade 2 listed building. I worked there for 4 years.
