Kingsley Village
in the heart of Cheshire

Dear friends,


The new Sandstone Ridge website has gone live!  In launching the site the Sandstone Ridge Trust hopes to achieve 3 things: firstly, celebrate the beauty and special qualities of the Ridge; secondly, encourage local people and visitors to ‘get out and experience’ the area at first hand and; thirdly, inspire the communities living and working on the Ridge to come together, pool their knowledge and talents and help look after this special landscape.

Here are some details for you:

Interested in being on TV? This letter received this week...

My name is Ryan and I’m on the casting team at Ricochet TV part of warner bros TV production UK 


We are making a new television show for BBC2 called “The repair shop”; the show looks into repairing beloved and interesting possessions for people who would like to see them restored or repaired back to their original working order.  The kind of items we have come across so far have ranged from inherited pocket watches to grandfather clocks, from rocking horses to drawn carriages, even from toy cars to VW campers. We have a team of experts who cover all trades such as blacksmithing, ceramics, clockmakers, upholsterers and carpenters


I am wondering if you might to be able to help spread the word amongst your parishes, networks and communities to see if anyone has an items that might be suitable they’d like to put forwards?


Additionally, as well as sentimental/interesting items belonging to individuals….we’d really love to feature and repair a few items in the show  that have a community value, something treasured or something essential to communities that has fallen into disrepair, perhaps has an interesting story and purpose to the village/town that can be restored.


For example some towns, villages and communities have certain items that are important to them; they could be memorial plaques,  eroded statues, snapped weather vanes, broken sun dials, cracked gargoyles,   fading carvings, or maybe the paint is peeling on your local pub’s swing sign.


Please note that although a lot of things can be moved, items would need to not be permanently stuck in situ, for example some larger statues or water fountains are grand logistically feats to move. The item would be repaired at our repair shop (a barn outfitted for our experts) and given back to the community at no expense to the owner - additionally there would be broadcasted tv coverage from start to finish of the item, in the work shop and also when the item is revealed to the owner or community.


Please also note that we are receiving a lot of items and interest across the country, and sometimes they can be too big and take too long to fix, so please don’t be disheartened if we can’t repair it this time


If you’re happy to please share this information amongst your community that would be appreciated greatly.


If perhaps you might have something you’d love to be repaired, then please get back in touch with us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us on 01273 224800 , I’ve attached a flyer with information


Best wishes and thank you for your time
