Those of you who have been driving to Chester recently, or perhaps been stuck in a traffic jam, will have seen the arrival of building contractors at Abbeyfields, the large house on the left beyond the Tarvin Roundabout. This large Victorian gentleman's country house was sold recently and work has started to create six new dwellings. But the imposing façade will not change, the six new dwellings will be created from the main house and the existing outbuildings. The only external changes will be the addition of a new garage block and a new driveway.
If you would like to take a closer look at the proposals, then you can look at the plans on http://www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk and look for planning application 16/04928/FUL
It is perhaps a shame that the property could not have remained in single ownership, but the market for such large homes is quite small. Its location, near what was once a quiet country road but is now a major thoroughfare, may also have been a factor. But that the site has been preserved while still providing new homes is good news for those of us who enjoy the visual attractions of the local countryside.
We look forwards to welcoming the new residents to the village community in due course.

Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
