The Wild Boar Hotel, formerly known as Beeston Towers, was built in 1886 for John Naylor, a timber merchant from Warrington.
The original building has been surrounded with additional extensions over the years, but the splendour of the past still remains. The centre section was the first to be erected and consisted of a number of rooms with a small Ballroom on the second floor looking out over the Cheshire plain. Some of the many interesting features of the building include a number of Gargoyles which still ward off Evil Spirits today, as well as two wood carvings of the Brothers which depict how they saw each other, (these can be found opposite each other on pillars in the Penthouse).
GRADE II LISTING C1895
This originated as a country house named Beeston Towers, which was timber-framed with jettying. Repeated additions and alterations were made during the 20th century in rendered brick. The building was used at one time as a school, and later converted into a public house, restaurant and hotel. It is a complex building, with features including much decorative timber-work, a tower, a lantern, and an octagonal belvedere. Some windows are mullioned or mullioned and transomed, and others are oriel windows.
