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.

No charge for the many hours it takes building and maintaining the website but there are a number of other costs including hosting, domain registration and additional software which all add up. Just you starting your Amazon shopping by clicking on the banner above will help a lot. Thank you.

Water and Waterways were in his Blood

David Wain OBE

The November edition of The History File is a tribute to David Wain OBE by David Cummings and Alf Croston. David Wain died in September this year. In Christleton we are so lucky to have the Shropshire Union Canal passing through the village. In days gone by the Skips Lane area was a hive of activity with boat builders yards. I am sure you will enjoy reading about this respected member of the Christleton community whose exploits included driving his car across the frozen River Dee near the old Dee Bridge..

A41 Highway collapse

Residents have received an update letter from Andrew Coward, Principal Engineer for Cheshire West & Chester City Council. They understand the frustration this work is causing and would like to give their assurance that the organisations involved are working hard to find a solution.

What a very depressing day

After a depressing afternoon visiting the public consultation at the University of Law on 19th July I thought I might cheer myself up by having a look at the two holes that have recently appeared in Christleton.
