Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.

Water and Waterways were in his Blood

David Wain OBE

The November edition of The History File is a tribute to David Wain OBE by David Cummings and Alf Croston. David Wain died in September this year. In Christleton we are so lucky to have the Shropshire Union Canal passing through the village. In days gone by the Skips Lane area was a hive of activity with boat builders yards. I am sure you will enjoy reading about this respected member of the Christleton community whose exploits included driving his car across the frozen River Dee near the old Dee Bridge..

Never mind Halloween a bigger Horror descends on Christleton

Christleton Law College Horror

I have received a letter from Cheshire West & Chester City Council this morning advising me of a planning notice for the conversion of Christleton Hall to residential use and the building of 42 dwellings. You will remember the previous application was turned down in April this year by the Council by 10 votes to 1 and the majority of the residents of Christleton. The planning application reference number is 18/03803/FUL and you have until 16th November to submit any comments.

Les George OBE

A charismatic and much respected man

A fitting tribute by David Cummings and Phil Hodges to Les George OBE. I urge you to read this edition of The History File for October, 2018. I never met him but first saw him at the Christleton Village Fete in 2000 held in the orchard of the Law College. After that I became aware of how much he was loved and admired. I always find it sad to learn so much about a person that I did know after they have died. It is often the earlier part of their lives that you are not aware of so I am sure that this tribute will particularly interest those who just knew him as the Headteacher of the Secondary Modern School which opened in Christleton in 1958.
