More Cheshire Curiosities

 

THE second in a trilogy of videos about unusual items or locations in Cheshire, "More Cheshire Curiosities", covers the Cheshire East local government area.

   Well, the northern part, to be precise. The first video covered South Cheshire before the local government changes were announced.

   This means that towns in the east of South Cheshire (or the southern part of Cheshire East) are not repeated in the new video.

   It runs for around 56 minutes, and is in colour, 4:3 ratio, and PAL format. The price is 10.

  All proceeds are for the restoration fund of St Mary's Parish Church, Nantwich.

  Places covered are: Alderley Edge, Astbury, Bollington, Englesea Brook, Gawsworth, Goostrey, Jodrell Bank,

 

Lower Peover,    Marston, NetherAlderley, Pott Shrigley, Prestbury, Rostherne, Saltersford, Siddington and Tatton Park. There is also a visit to Macclesfield.

Death of historian who helped us

WE were saddened to hear of the death of Knutsford historian, Joan Leach MBE, who had advised us on some aspects of the town and Elizabeth Gaskell when we made the DVD.

  Joan died suddenly on September 30, 2010, after a short illness. Her funeral service was held on October 13 at Brook Street Chapel, Knutsford, in the grounds of which the Gaskell family are interred.

   Martin Leach said: "Mum lived her life dedicated to the love of history and to Elizabeth Gaskell. She gave herself willingly to the cause and gave her life to her friends and contacts through the years, selflessly doing it all for the joy of the giving and for making others happy."
