English: Threapwood is a small village in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is close to the villages of Shocklach, Worthenbury and Malpas. The name is reputed to have derived from the Old English 'Threap' meaning to beat, thrash or cheat. It is rumoured that in history, Threapwood fell between, but outside of the control of, three parishes and as such was the home to brigands, ruffians, illegitimate children and women of loose repute.
