Also known as Peover Superior, the village of Over Peover is situated 5 miles south of the historic town of Knutsford in the county of Cheshire. This ancient parish is mentioned in the Domesday Book, the survey undertaken after the Norman Conquest, and dates to Anglo Saxon times and before. The name Peover means Bright Stream or Shining Water and refers to The Peover Eye, the river which forms one of the parish boundaries. You can read more about the fascinating history of the village and Peover Hall in the book written by Barry Wienholt and John Mottershead and published to commemorate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002.
Today, Over Peover is a modern rural community in a peaceful and attractive countryside environment. The Estate houses in Peover are located in the tranquil grounds of Peover Hall which is the home of the Brooks family.
