From time to time we like to take a break from our musings on Middlewich's past and take note of what is happening in the present day. This is a brand new photograph, taken on the 5th of September 2011, and showing dramatic developments alongside the Trent & Mersey Canal and River Croco not far from Town Bridge. The picture was taken from the bottom of Wych House Lane, looking towards Brooks Lane. The large red brick building in the background is The Boar's Head Hotel and the white building left of centre is the adjoining Kinderton Hotel, the garden of which, with its long hedge, can be seen directly below the BH. A huge swathe of land has been cleared from the Kinderton's garden right down to the River Croco (immediately beyond the canal in the foreground). Does anyone know why this has been done, who has done it, and, basically, what is happening in Brooks Lane?
Well, as expected, this generated a lot of interest. Here's the Facebook Feedback:
