Chester Road Blocked by stones !!!!
The web team understand that there are rumours circulating the village on social media that Chester Road will be closed and questions are being asked as to why the Parish Council has allowed this to happen and has not consulted the community in advance.
This is not the case
It is the way the notice from Cheshire West Council has been miss-interpreted. The notice, as copied below, has a map attached which clearly shows that the proposed location is actually the Old Chester Road at No Mans Heath, which is no longer a through route.
