    More test borings done in the Farmer Arms car park (Rush green road) Lymm. Houses. Rent asked for pub is £49000pa!! Will be"we tried to rent it but couldn't find a mug".Only option is build on site
  2. Does anyone know who I could contact about the gas engine? I'm a member of the Anson Engine Museum and we collect and exhibit items from our industrial past. (Remember we made things once)
  3. What is the gas engine genset? The Anson Engine Museum I'm sure would be interested in it.
  4. Apparently Mr.Parr had the high level bridge over the canal built as he got hacked off waiting in his pony and trap when swing bridge open.A hall AND a bridge,may not be art but surely style.P.S.His house at Grappenhall was pulled down by WBC.

    Work on the new Netto proceeds. In order to heed local sensibilities any bags supplied are printed "Arrods Food All".
  6. The trial digs in the Farmers car parks must have been to make sure that travellers vans and 4x4s don't come to harm. Maybe some lights so exit onto Rushgreen road will be safe. (Since it'll never be built on).
  7. Don't worry Joe, it'll come.

    Surprise surprise.Planning permission for houses on the Farmers Arms car park.Be no problem there,Lymm Church could be knocked down and built on provided it generates rate income.
  9. Got one in lymm. Handy for checking if acceleration times have improved after engine tweaks. Much more useful than having wardens with the courage to ticket vehicles blatantly parked on double yellows etc.
  10. Have any members ever actually spoken to WBC without ages on hold? I can't afford the phone bill. A recorded voice keeps refering the desperate phoner to the WBC website,which is ace at freezing.

    Car park was once the bowling green.

    Did ask.Driver just said he'd been told to dig where instructed.Pub is not 300 years old.

    JCB doing trial digs, with two people in attendance, in car park of closed Farmers Arms on Rush Green road Lymm. Expect it's to ensure that the expected rush of vehicles when pub re-opens will be safe.Can't think of any other reason.

    Railway Hotell at Heatley, closed and boarded up. Mysterious fire solves any planning probs. Mr.Smiths ditto. Farmers Arms on Rushgreen Road(closed) must be dreading the planning match.
