For those of you who wander along the towpath from time to time you will have spotted some major works taking place at one of the locks. This has provided a unique opportunity to see what goes on under the surface of the canal.
The flight of locks at Adderley continues the ascent and descent from the Audlem flight taking traffic from the Cheshire Plain up to Market Drayton and beyond. Built by Thomas Telford the historical significance of the canal at Adderley is marked by the listing of its bridges over the canal.
Even if you’re not one of the regulars along the towpath it’s worth getting your wellies out of the cupboard and taking a stroll just to see before the repairs are complete and the canal is allowed to regain its working level.

Singing with Kate and the Hope Hope House Concert
We have not had as many people come forwards as we needed for this event so we’re going to postpone it for now. It was necessary to give Kate plenty of notice and with not enough people coming forwards we felt that it was only right that we put this off until there are more people coming forwards to participate.
Many apologies for those who expressed an interest and fingers crossed for next time.
West Mercia Police will be bringing the mobile Police Station to Adderley Village Hall on the 22nd January. The Safer Neighbourhoods Team will be holding a property marking event to help you keep your property safe and secure.
