Rose Cottage at the centre of the old Upton Village

Rose Cottage is believed to be the oldest private domestic house in Upton although clearly the porch is a latter addition.

It is believed to be 'The Man in the Moon' public house as featured in the 1735 'enclosures map of Upton Heath'.

The 1839 Tithe Survey records the cottage owned by Land Owner & Chester solicitor Samuel Britain with tenant Miss Whitelock. By 1874 the Cheshire Directory records the occupants as Mrs.Elizabeth & Christian Edmondson
