Cheshire Locks Working Party

The location will be Lock 64 at Malkin’s Bank. There’s plenty of work to be done on locks 61-64 which will keep us busy for the coming months.

Parking info – Lock 64 can be accessed from the main road through Malkin’s Bank village. Parking will be available on bollarded CRT land at Lock 63. By Sat Nav use post code CW11 4XN.
 
If you’re travelling from Rode Heath on the A533, carry on for about 1.5 miles until you come to a crossroads. Turn left onto New Inn Lane and follow this for about half a mile. Turn right at a 3 way junction just before Hassall Green onto Betchton Road. Carry on for 1.2 miles past the entrance to Malkin’s Bank Golf Course and new houses on the left until you come to the end of a row of old terraced houses. At this point Betchton Road takes a gradual right and becomes Hassall Road. Turn left instead up a track towards the bridge over Lock 63. Park on CRT land on the left just before the bridge. Alternatively, park tight against the fence opposite.  
 
If you’re travelling from Sandbach, take the A533 to Alsager. After about half a mile, just past the Co-op and opposite the Top of the Hill Chip Shop, take a right onto Hassall Road. After about 0.8 miles Hassall Road takes a gradual left and becomes Betchton Road. Turn right instead up a track the Bridge over Lock 63 and park as above.
 
We will meet as usual at 10-00 a.m. and work through until 3-00 p.m. If you are able to stay all day , please bring a packed lunch and a drink. Be sure to wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty and marked with paint. Stout footwear is appropriate and bring along a waterproof in the event of rain. 

Tony Walker and John Lawson will lead the work party (Contact Nos. 07708 320470/07940 878923 respectively).  We very much look forward to welcoming as many of you as are able to attend.
