The town of Malpas is easily among the most fascinating in the lovely and interesting county of Cheshire. Rare is a town that has had as much rich history as Malpas and still manages to command a healthy presence in today's world. This is the nature of Malpas, though, and England is truly lucky to be the home of such a tremendous and lovely town.

While many of England's towns and villages date back to ages long since lost, Malpas is in fact older than a good portion of these locations. Roman roads can still be found in the town that date back to the days when the Empire was spreading its massive might throughout the continent of Europe. Rome eventually collapsed under its own weight, though, and in Malpas the people who picked up the slack were in fact none other than the Welsh. As such, one can see traces of the rich and colorful Welsh language in some of the relics and history of Malpas. Malpas was the home of many dedications to the beloved hero St. Oswald and it is believed that these dedications were created under the orders of Earl Aethelred, who commanded a large part of the area in the late 800s and early 900s.

By the time the first millennium came around the Norman Empire was roaring through Europe with its massive muscle and during their reign Malpas was actually known as Depenbech. Eventually Malpas earned the name it has now though and it also earned something even more exciting: Its own castle. Malpas Castle can still be seen to this day and it is truly a wonder to behold. Unfortunately, it is a bit less glorious to the Welsh people who had the control of the town wrested out of their hands. The castle was employed as a stronghold along the Welsh border to ensure that Wales not only couldn't have its land back but also had to look at a symbol of Norman dominance every time they looked toward their former home.

By the medieval times Malpas was finally becoming a semblance of a real city and not a stronghold in a line of Castle towns along the Welsh border. Malpas got itself a market grant in the 1100s and hasn't looked back since. Instead of exploding during the Industrial Revolution or allowing itself to be overrun with infrastructure, Malpas instead chose to keep its identity intact and a visitor to the town today will see, aside from the necessary features of modern life, much of the same flavor that must have permeated Malpas in the early days of its infancy. This is of course a thrill to anybody interested in history and culture and as such Malpas does command a healthy tourism industry. It also helps that Malpas is near the Welsh border and fans of the fascinating history of Wales take great pleasure in exploring the borders where countless battles were fought. Malpas has a scant two thousand residents or less but don't let this fool you into thinking the town is insignificant. On the contrary, Malpas is and always has been pivotal to the security and growth of England.
