WYBUNBURY PARISH COUNCIL

LOW WATER PRESSURE

Further to the discussions at the Parish Council meeting on Monday 11th November United Utilities have now confirmed their intentions to have representatives at the 9th December meeting to report on investigations currently being carried out and plans to improve the water pressure in the Parish.

Residents are strongly advised to continue to express their concerns to United Utilities and this is best done in writing to the address below as this will have a considerably greater impact than either

e-mails or telephone calls which, whilst logged, do not normally require a response.

home of the fig pie wakes

Wybunbury Fig Pie Wake is a very strange, very English, and (apparently) quite old. The custom of rolling specially-made fig pies down the village’s hill at the annual Wybunbury Wakes festival in Cheshire is strangely interesting

Once a year, in a quiet and picturesque village, tucked away in a corner of South Cheshire, over 1,000 people enjoy the June sunshine, while watching a very different kind of sport:  Fig Pie Rolling.

the leaning tower of wybunbury

Believe it or not, the village of Wybunbury and the Italian town of Pisa have something in common.

 Wybunbury’s 29.3 m tower is all that remains of a late fifteenth century church demolished in 1833. (Later churches, replacing the fifteenth century one, were also demolished in 1892 and 1977). The tower was stabilised using under excavation by James Trubshaw in 1832 and this is the earliest known application of the technique, which was also used more notably to stabilise the Leaning Tower of Pisa! So it could be claimed that if it wasn’t for Wybunbury one of the world’s most famous monuments may have inclined its way to a decline.
