  • Nantwich

    Off to Nantwich tomorrow for four days, then to Preston and on to the lights at Blackpool. Any ideas of good locations, not too far?
    Chester and Lyme Park are obvious but open for ideas.

    Bickerton Hill/Beeston Castle come to mind. Nantwich was my home town for years so there's probably others that will occur to me later.

    It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

      Re: Nantwich

      Was down in Tarporley for a couple of days last week.
      The weather was Scottish.
      Can recommend Beeston Castle if its a good day. Ellesmere is also good from past experience, for canal stuff, etc. Chester also has lots of possibilities and if you do go, the Park & Ride is good.
      I once didn't do justice to a photograph of the shop in the tiny village of Knockin nearby. (Scottish joke)
      I believe there is railway memorabilia stuff at Crewe and a little further east is Jodrell Bank which always looks spectacular.

        Hi Dave.

        My partner comes from Kelsall and being artistic she suggests as well as the previous posts.

        Delamere forest should be good at this time of year.

        Chester Zoo.

        Jodrell bank.

        Tatton Park.

        Hatchmere Lake

        Olton park race track at Little Budworth, if there's a trackday or something going on thats if you're interested in motor sport i'll see whats on over your time there, Just remembered its the last round of British Super Bikes there Fri-Sun, but likely something's on earlier in the week so the best rider's are there and just down the road is Oulton Mill pool.

        I hope you have nice trip anyway and if we can help you anymore let me know.

          Dave,

          Further suggestions for Cheshire, depending on weather and/or opening times:

          Bramall Hall
          Little Moreton Hall
          Nether Alderley - church, old school & mill
          Marton Church - timber framed
          Knutsford - Richard Watt's mad buildings
          Astbury church - side walls aren't parallel, so seems longer than it is!
          Tabley House - Palladian house by Carr of York
          Macclesfield - Silk Mills museum - working jacquard looms (using sets of punched cards)

          Have fun!

          Andrew

              Ellesmere definitely some nice shots up there and a bit further west Whittington Castle, Gridley Brook Staircase locks on the canal, the canal in general, Wrenbury is a nice little place with a nice little pub, The sceret bunker of course may be worth a look too, that's just outside Nantwich...

              Ellesmere wharf:

                  Don't tell him!
                  Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.

                      We could see it from Beeston Castle.
                      There is one up near Crail which is a visitor attraction.
