Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.

Third Time of Asking

We are being asked for the third time to approve the development of Christleton Hall. A development which the majority residents of Christleton have said they do not want for so many valid reasons already clearly set out by our Parish Council. Cheshire West and Chester City councillors have rejected two applications for the development. You have until 3rd April to make your feelings known on this website http://planningconsultatio.avisonyoung.co.uk/

Even if you approve of this development you will probably be horrified to hear that at present the plans are to use Pepper Street for construction access. This would require a ban on village centre car parking to facilitate the shuttle of Heavy Goods Vehicles along this route. This would have a devastating effect on the community and the businesses in the village. Pepper Street and parts of Little Heath Lane are too narrow for HGV and buses to pass without mounting the kerbs endangering pedestrians and cyclists. It should be a condition that the developer, with the agreement of the landowner to have access to the site across the fields from Pearl Lane.

Christleton Pit

New Booklet

You might pass it every morning going to work or you might walk the dog down there for an interesting stroll. A place to relax and enjoy the wildlife. Christleton is greatly favoured with the Pit. But do you know how it came to be there and why it always looks so cared for. A new booklet The Story of Christleton Pit by David Cummings is now available.
