Roads and Speed
As a result of the last newsletter, the Parish Council had several replies to comments on the desirability of lower speed limits on several roads in Allostock. The Parish Council has made every possible representation to the Highways Authorities over very many years urging the reduction of speed limits on country road.
A 50 mph Speed limit is now in force on London Road.
Hulme Hall with its moat and medieval bridge is Allostock’s oldest and most archeologically significant monument. The site is an English Heritage Scheduled Ancient Monument and the Hall and bridge are Grade 2* listed.
A great deal of work has been done to make this a family home once more.
Volunteers have been supplied with “pickers” luminous vests and bags and have made a huge difference to the amount of litter removed from Allostock’s roads and footpaths. Many thanks to all who continue to take part in this community effort. Anyone else interested in helping out please ‘phone the Parish Council on 01565 722422
