The Cheshire Regiment was an infantry regiment of the British Army, part of the Prince of Wales' Division. The regiment was created in 1881 as part of the Childers reforms by the linking of the 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment of Foot and the militia and rifle volunteers of Cheshire. The title 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment continued to be used within the regiment.

The 22nd Foot was raised by the Duke of Norfolk in 1689 and was able to boast an independent existence of over 325 years, being one of five line infantry regiments never to have been amalgamated in its history. Up to 2006, it shared this claim with:

    The Royal Scots
    The Green Howards
    The Royal Welch Fusiliers
    The King's Own Scottish Borderers

On September 1, 2007, the Cheshire Regiment was merged with other regiments to form part of the Mercian Regiment, becoming 1st Battalion The Mercian Regiment (Cheshire).
