Sold at auction in three lots: Knutsford Road to Grammar School Road, Grammar School Road to Wash Lane, Wash Lane toward the Latchford run-round sidings.

I was looking for how they were marketing the old toilet block at Bluecoat Street!

 

Can't dismantle the embankment - green corridor etc - but maybe sell edges for expanding residents' gardens? (If they've not already encroached...)

Quite suprised how much they went for in the end considering the guide price and no offers on Woolston Library (that suprised me).

 

There are a further 50 pieces of land listed in the guardian this week that the council are disposing off.. objections to be submitted by 28th Oct :wink:

 

Good investment if they are near any land which may in the future be needed for development or of course if access to other areas is needed over it :wink:

Your not thinking of taking up 'Bridge' spotting are you Peter.... Thats the next weirdest hobby after train spotting :lol::shock:

 

I can just imagine you with your binolculars, long coat, notepad, pencil and sharpener and windswept hair style with an excited look on your face as you finally spot one :lol::lol::lol:

Does that include the sidings behind Priestley and the Stadium?

 

Where can you get the bridge numbers from?

No, they'll only be released if the Arpley chord is built so trains to/from Fiddlers Ferry don't have to reverse at Latchford.

 

Bridge numbers? http://www2.mihalis.net/canal/cgi-bin/gazette.cgi Click Northwest, Bridgewater, Main Line.

Interesting, but I was referring to the rail bridges.
