Guilden Sutton - things are changing



The landlord of the Bird in Hand will be leaving in October which means the pub is likely to close by the end of September. The intentions of the owner of the pub are not known. Further news will appear here when it becomes available.


27 Guilden Sutton bus service to stop


The current 27 bus service from Guilden Sutton is to be replaced with an altered No. 26 service. Initial details can be found here and the suggested timetable is available here. The new service reaches Chester more rapidly via a direct route and is more frequent with an hourly service from 09:15 through to 15:45. There seems to be no weekend service or Upton High School routing.

There is a petition doing the rounds against these changes. Copies available from the Post Office and Somerfield House.


Road closure



Wicker Lane C836 from junction A51 Tarvin Road to junction Cinder Lane. From July 17 for a period of not more than 6 weeks. Additional lights at the junction of School Lane and Station Lane are there to ensure safety due to larger vehicles using the route and will only be there for a short time.

Fracking for shale gas

IGas Energy seismic surveys in our area



The Bowland Shale (above) is the largest area of shale gas deposits in the UK containing an estimated 1329 trillion cubic feet of shale gas. Only a small proportion of this is commercially extractable. To provide reliable estimates of where extractable reserve gas lies, wells are drilled, maps are consulted and seismic surveys are performed. Such seismic surveys are in the process of being carried out in the areas of Ince, Stoke, Thornton-Le-Moors, Little Stanney, Elton and Frodsham Marsh.
