Cheshire Locks Working Party

We will still be working on Lock 60 then Lock 59 (which are the last 2 pairs of locks that we have never worked on). These locks are accessible from Betchton Road, Malkins Bank via a farm track leading to Lock 60 and Bridge 149 which crosses the canal to the stables and farm yard beyond. I am pleased to advise that we have secured a parking area adjacent to Lock 60 on the right side of the track just before the bridge. The nearest postcode to the entrance to the farm lane is CW11 4YF.

If you are travelling via Hassall Green towards Malkins Bank, the access road is on your left, approx. 500 yds before the entrance to Malkins Bank Golf Club. There is a stile adjacent to the access road, and the farm road is lined with post and rail fencing. White painted large stones are placed on the grass verge.

If you are travelling from Sandbach (turning right after the Top ‘O the Hill Chippy) via Hassall Road then Betchton Road, the access road is approx. 500 yds beyond the Golf Club entrance. There is a red brick building (Brock Barn nameplate on the side) just before your right turn into the access road.

Bus route is D & G Bus – Service 317.

Meet at 10 a.m. and, given good weather, we will work through to 3:30 p.m. If you are able to stay all day, please bring a packed lunch and drink. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or paint on and wear stout footwear. Have a waterproof in case of rain.

It would be very helpful if you could advise John Lawson that you are planning to attend so that all the tools, equipment, lifejackets etc. can be provided.
