Haughton (or Haughton Moss) is a village and civil parish which lies northwest of Nantwich in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. According to the 2001 Census, its population was 223 and has four fully active farms.
The village name of Haughton derives from a Norman surname, although not much is known about the Haughton family history from this time. However, the land to which the family gives its name was granted to them by William the Conqueror, for their help in the Battle of Hastings.
A 3 cm long silver gilt crucifix was discovered in a field near the village in 2002. The artifact, likely to have been worn around the neck on a chain, was dated as late fourteenth or early fifteenth century by experts at the British Museum.
The Nags Head public house, a half timbered building dating back to 1629, is situated in the village.
A war memorial mounted on a brick plinth on Long Lane was originally from neighbouring Radmore Green chapel. It was rescued by local residents Derek Rogers and Tom Dawson when the chapel was converted to a dwelling. It is dedicated to those associated with the chapel and the village, who fought in the First World War.
Every year, Haughton Hall gardens are opened to the public, it features a medium-sized garden; filled with rhododendrons, azaleas, shrubs, a rock garden, a lake with a temple, a waterfall and a collection of ornamental trees.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
