Part of that woodland is for Sale on Thursday 9th September by Auction,Their is a strong possibility that the land will be purchased by the travelling community as we have witnessed them marking the land out, They also very cheekily put sold signs up over the Auction signs to deter any fellow bidders. The land for Sale does not stretch as far as the church site, The Land can not be built on "Legally". I just hope that if they are succesful in their purchase that they respect the History on their doorstep

I have just e-mailed English Heritage to say how annoyed I was.

e-mail:
Hello,
Are you aware that this English Heritage site could soon be looted by Travelers ?
Please read the whole thread upto and including page5.

https://www.wikiwirral.co.uk/forums/ubbth...html#Post306923

I think there will be many members who find out about this disgracefull affair, wanting to leave English Heritage !!

Please tell me that you are going to do something before it is too late.


Joe


lets hope they do something- the days are ticking away !

What were they doing on the land in the first place ? Marking it out ?? It is NOT their property !! Where were the "Sold" signs stolen from to stick over the Auction sign ??

Is there anyone trespassing/squatting on the land now ??

This should ring alarms bells loud and clear !!

I have emailed English Heritage with a plan of the land in question to see whether that area falls inside the Scheduled Ancient Monument area. Also spoken to the planning department who inform me that alot of trees are also protected by Tree preservation Orders. I am attending a briefing this evening regarding a plan of action, I will keep you posted. No Planning would ever be given for this land. I just can't see it having any value you can not do anything with it. My opinion is that they intended to buy it and clear the trees, now they have found they can't, I imagine they will lose interest.

If any moderators read this can they somehow put all to do with the Sale of land in a new thread, as I seem to have started something that is perhaps not in the correct genre. And it was not my intention to hijack a History thread

Thanks

UPDATE: After a meeting with Jean Robinson, Local councillors and some local residents. A notice is going to be submitted to the local authority regarding the land being an open space, although this will not halt any Sale as time is not on our side. Their was a suggestion that people make donations and a representative bids for the land in question, knowing how much he has to spend from a list of pledges. If anyone is fortunate enough financially and would like to consider making a pledge to donate, please contact me as a matter of urgency and I will happily forward them to the appropiate people. The idea would be to then donate the land to the woodland trust
