PLANS have been re­vealed for a new hol­i­day re­treat in a ru­ral idyll.

Ro­tunda Round­houses Lim­ited has sub­mit­ted plans to build 12 ‘ro­tunda lodges’ on land off Cop­pice Road, Poyn­ton.

The scheme also in­cludes a re­cep­tion build­ing and water­side shel­ter.

The lodges will be made of tim­ber with a green roof.

The plans are with Cheshire East Coun­cil for a de­ci­sion but have al­ready been met with some lo­cal ob­jec­tion.


A COUN­TRY­SIDE ranger has cre­ated a life-sized wood carv­ing for the Mid­dle­wood Way.

Ed Pilk­ing­ton used his chain­saw to carve the statue of a wo­man ‘pas­sen­ger’ from a felled poplar.

It is now at the for­mer site of Higher Poyn­ton rail­way sta­tion on the scenic route.
