40 miles or so covered today during a trip to the Gold Cup at Oulton Park, gearbox appears to be behaving itself, so a pleasant run out.

Another successful drive out yesterday, on this occasion to Cholmondeley Castle, roof down this time, unlike a few days earlier at Oulton Park where it remained raised.

Maybe they were brothers called Horace and John ("Dodge Brothers" people will understand).

Although I think the Dodge family can trace their roots back to Stockport way somewhere iirc, there's a plaque on a building somewhere I'm told.

The Dodge family story in America began in 1629. It would be interesting to research their English ancestry. The Dodge Brothers grew up in Michigan which they left in 1886 to set up business in Detroit. Theirs is a fascinating story which would lend itself to film or TV.

From Google Earth it would appear that the road got the go ahead close to the historic farmhouse.

So, do you know what the situation is with regards to the Farm? It looks like the road is taking the same route as the already trashed land?

Such a shame.

(It reminds me how HS2 is going where wiser heads decided against in the past.)

Hi
I'll ask my son, who lives in Stockport if he knows the latest.
I would think the decision to run alongside the Sand and Gravel rather than through it is because it costs less to destroy a few trees and houses than to trash a business you need to provide materials for the job you are doing.

It says here that the scheme is dead in the water. I hope they never get round to building the road. We can't afford to maintain the roads we already have - let alone build more!
