  These include: A third castle on the Cheshire Plain; a summerhouse that was built as a ruin; the place of worship with 10 Green Men and 12 church mice; a house covered with images of people who "wronged" a local man; the grave of a cricketer who played in the first "Ashes" cricket test match; and a water bowl for canine rail travellers.

   The video features curiosities in Acton, Audlem, Barthomley, Bickley, Bunbury, Cholmondeley, Crewe Green, Hargrave, Marbury, Mow Cop (with Rode Hall), Nantwich, Peckforton, Sandbach, Shocklach, Stapeley, Wrenbury and Wybunbury. Also Crewe Station and the Old Coach Road.

    It costs 10 and runs for approximately 52 minutes. It is in colour, 4:3 ratio, and PAL formats (See this page for information about different formats.)


   All proceeds are for the restoration fund of St Mary's Parish Church, Nantwich.
