Does anyone know how long the old Coop site in Hazel Grove was closed whilst it became an ASDA. That might give us some idea how long it will take.
I think it was two weeks but the road layout and car park took quite a good while .

I thought they opened the store way before all the car park had finished.

Your correct Victor they opened before the CP was remodelled and that itself was held up by various utility problems

Asda had to re-model the car park etc and i suspect it's not quite as significant in that Marple can be far more profitable.

Agreed.  I'll be amazed if the shop closes for a month.  A day or two would be enough time for the signs to be changed and the stock to be valued.  (Bring it on  Grin)

I don't think they will value the stock, I'd expect the whole lot will be moved out in one go including the fittings etc. They may leave the lighting and PA but expect to see a team of over 50 come in and move it all. Similarly, Asda's team will come in, and refit in no time at all. Then it's just a case of getting the stock in.

I would have thought it might take a little longer but not a month. No retailer would want to give up a months sales at such a key time of the year. But I would have thought they would want to redesign the store and perhaps remove the cafe to create more sales space. But I agree they will do it quickly. After all the social engineering the Council has been engaged in has to have been for some purpose.

Hope the event goes well.

Shame it clashed with the large regional classic vehicle event in Heaton Park on the same day.

Given the normal width of a canal towpath, most people will 'take up the whole width' on their own!  I don't know about others, but I normally step aside in good time and allow cyclists to pass, if I know they are there and, crucially, if they approach at a considerate and safe speed.  But if someone comes riding towards me like a bat out of hell I remain the the middle of the path until he (and the speed maniacs are invariably male) slows down. 
I walk and cycle the Peak Forest all the time (with good use of a bell!) and funnily enough even on a bike myself I have the occasional grievance with other people passing on bikes without slowing down or moving to one side, presuming I'll move up onto the grass (not always a good idea where the towpath suddenly disappears). I can tell how some walkers feel by the very clear and sincere "thank you" you get for using a bell in good time! (You're welcome Cheesy)

About the width/suitability for cycling, that's the point: the towpath IS used by cyclists, they're probably only going to increase, it provides a vital bypass for the horrible roads either side, so the modest amount of money it'd take to make it more suitable (widening, resurfacing to make the most of the towpath's width) would be well-spent and appreciated by all - you wouldn't have to step into a hedge or into the mud just to let someone pass! The towpath beyond New Mills as far as Bugsworth is perfect and puts Marple to shame (apparently improved with funding from the Derbyshire Regional Development Fund).

About the "peloton" - it does depend on the road. If you have two or more cyclists riding as a line, single file along the edge of a narrow road, it probably makes it more difficult and dangerous to pass because they will take that much longer to get past. In that case, it could be better to ride side-by-side and make vehicles behind overtake properly rather than squeezing past.
