Temporary Closures
Canal towpath around Danson's Bridge - until 1600 Sunday 11th March
A marked diversion is in place

Bridleway 42 north of Hadley Farm - until drier weather allows vehicle access for repair of bridge.
Closed on safety grounds. There is no local diversion. The best way round is to use the canal towpath between Danson's Bridge [but see above] and Hadley Moorings.
This affects both the Whitchurch Wheel and Walk 10 in our book of walks.

Bridleway 60 by Hinton Court linking Hinton Old Hall to Wirswall - 3 April 2018 to 20 April 2018

Shropshire Council intends, to make an order temporarily prohibiting the use of that part of Bridleway 60 at Hinton Court, Wirswall from GR SJ 5394 4327 running generally north easterly, and including a very short section of FP 56, for approximately 210 metres to GR SJ 5409 4344 a few metres from the County boundary.
The Order will come into operation on 3 April 2018 and is required on the grounds of public safety to allow the installation of a new water main to Wirswall Service Reservoir.
There is no alternative route in the immediate vicinity.

This affects the Whitchurch Wheel for which you would need to use the more southerly path across the north end of the golf course, partly following the route of Walk 9

Mid week walk from Wrenbury along the Llangollen Canal
Tuesday 9th January 2018

We will take the number 72 bus at 09.55 from White Lion Meadow [Tesco] to Wrenbury, then we will walk back along the canal with a pub lunch at the Willey Moor Lock Inn. After lunch continue on the canal to Jackson's bridge, cross the canal, then walk over the fields back to Whitchurch. The walk will be around 7 1/2 miles, please bring your bus passes if lucky enough to have them! I had intended to do a different walk, but the "lurgy" has grounded me for a few days, so not been able to recce the walk, so will try and do it next time. Anyone interested please meet at Tesco around 09.45, and I would guess we should be back around 15.30, hope to see some of you on Tuesday 9th, Peter.

31st December
Sunday 10th December
The walk around the Congleton Loop has been cancelled on account of the forecast of heavy snow for most of the day
