      Changes to our Site Chat   05/04/17

      Invision Power Services Inc, the developers of our forum & chat software will be retiring the existing Chat functionality of the site as of May this year. (You may read more about this here) As such, we are in the position of finding an alternative solution given we believe that our chat functionality still has a place on Canal World. We're currently trialing out new "Chatbox" software on the site which you may view both via the bottom of the main page or by clicking "Chatbox" at the top right of the page. We appreciate the design & functionality is different though we welcome your feedback.

  1. CRT brought their maintenance items off the strines road and through the farm road to the compound. The bridge is used by a private property with no connection to the tipped material or the land it is situated on. The problem that I saw with the bridge is that when it is lowered it does not seat properly and remains about 8" proud, once a vehicle passes over it the bridge is persuaded into it's down position, obviously a vehicle can only do this if it is passing over in the right direction. The bridge does not seat correctly because it has become distorted by the excess weight that has passed over it by the contractor who tipped the spoil, believed to be a skip firm from Whaley bridge. The framework of the bridge causes a height restriction.
  2. Ćheshire East council do not do anything, and the Environment Agency are not bothered. I met a solicitor walking his dogs, he advised if a response is required from them you have to have a disability or be in a wheelchair ..... then, maybe, they will jump into action... Did not feel like ringing up and lying !
  3. It is correct large heavy lorries have damaged the bridge, the tipping must be illegal as many mature trees are bring killed by the massive stockpile of tipped material from demolition sites etc. yet CRT or the environment agency do not take any action when complaints and information is given to them. It is not the farm that the road along the side of the canal leads to, they suffer by bring trapped in their house now.... It is a local farm that produces chickens in the shell !
