Nov 19th

10 am - 3 pm
  
Cheshire Locks Working Party 

We will continue work around Lock 65 in Wheelock. Most of the metal-work was completed in October, but there is still plenty of wood to be painted (and even a couple of jobs on the adjacent Lock 66).  

The locks are accessible by car via Cotton Lane from the centre of Wheelock village, situated on the A534 "old" road between Crewe and Sandbach.  We have been fortunate to secure limited car park spaces at Cain 9 Dog Grooming - post code CW11 4RB. Turn into the car park at the end of Cotton Lane and park on the right hand side. 

The locks can also be reached on foot along the towpath from Wheelock walking south towards Malkins Bank and Hassall Green. Bus route is D & G Service No. 38. However, if you intend leaving your car in the village, do NOT park on the privately owned, camera controlled pay and display car park adjacent to Wheelock Wharf and the Barchetta Restaurant where onerous fines are applicable. There is a small council car park at the junction with Crewe Road and Mill Lane, adjacent to the start of Cotton Lane.  

Meet at 10 a.m. and given good weather we will work through to 3 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.

The Canal and River Trust have drawn up a new set of Covid - 19 related Heath and Safety protocols and safe methods of working to maintain social distancing as required. These guidelines (not sharing tools, brushes etc., and with one volunteer working on each gate, rail etc. at any one time) mean that 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
