THE DEE ESTATES. ——-♦ THE RECLAMATION SCHEME. A Hooley Company without a bevy of belted earls upon its Board will strike the great army of investors as somewhat novel. The new departure will be observed when the prospectus of the Dee Estates, Limited, is issued, and this (says the Westminster Gazette) will be very shortly. A gigantic reclamation scheme such as this undertaking requires a Board composed of exceptionally practical men, and the directors of the forthcoming company will include such experts as Mr. Marshall Stevens, now managing director of the Trafford Park Estates; Mr. Percival Fowler, son of the eminent civil engineer Sir John Fowler, Bart., and Mr. Bridgford, the well-known Manchester land and estate agent. The estate has been for some years in the hands of Mr. George H. Skelsey, of Oxton, Birkenhead, who will, it is understood, also join the Board after allotment. Of the property now about to pass into the hands of the new company upwards of 3,000 acres, situated between Chester and Queen's Ferry, are in a high state of cultiva- tion, while 19,000 acres have yet to be reclaimed. The intention is to develop West Kirby and Hoy lake, which are said to be capable of infinite extension, favourably situated as they are fronting the estuary of the Dee. Included in the sale to the company will be Mostyn Dock and the shipbuilding yard and land for docks at Connah's Quay-both properties capable of much development. The corrugated-iron works of Messrs. Summers and Sons have been erected on a large tract of the reclaimed land at Hawarden Bridge; and as the banks of the Dee are very suitable for such commercial undertakings, the establishment of many more works may be expected. The enterprise is obviously of national importance.
