History behind Thelwall and the significance of the Pickering Arms In AD 923 King Edward the Elder ordered a burh to be built to guard the crossing of the River Mersey from the Danes. It was a mistranslation of the word burh, which means military fort, which led to Thelwall being described as a “city”, hence the legend which appears on the gable end of the 17th Century Pickering Arms public house- reading "In the year 923 King Edward the Elder founded a city here and he called it Thelwall".
