Thornton Hough is located towards the centre of Wirral and is within a largely undeveloped, rural setting. It is a compact settlement, built during the late 19th and early 20th centuries as an ‘estate village’. Thornton Hough was further developed to house the employees of the Leverhulme Estate.

The character of the area is largely determined by the scale, building materials and architectural detailing of buildings and terraces which directly reflect the different phases of its development.
Building within the area is generally focused around key elements such as the green or either of the two churches.
