Helsby is a village and civil parish with a population of approximately 4700 in the borough of Vale Royal which is in the county of Cheshire in the North West of England.
It is situated on the A56 main road between Chester and Runcorn. The neighbouring villages are Dunham-On-The-Hill, Frodsham, Elton and Alvanley. Helsby is a semi-rural village, with many dairy and arable farms, but is also in close proximity to a number of industrial plants around the Mersey estuary including the Shell oil refinery at Stanlow, the Quinn Glass manufacturing plant, the Kemira fertiliser plant on Ince marshes and the chemical manufacturing site (previously ICI chemicals, now Ineos Chlor) and power station at Rocksavage. Although there are now few jobs in Helsby itself, the village is popular with commuters as a residential area, due to its good transport links to the motorway (M56) and rail networks, despite being less attractive than many due to the nearby industrial landscape.
