Until 1972 Chester was one of only four counties which had no VCH volume. In that year, however, the Cheshire VCH was set up, generously funded by grants from the Leverhulme Trust and Cheshire County Council and with much valued support from the University of Liverpool. Throughout its existence the project has been a partnership between some or all of these bodies and the University of London's Institute of Historical Research, the home of the VCH's Central Office.
Work ceased in 2005 with the publication of the second volume on the city of Chester, though there is significant enthusiasm within the county for work to restart.
