Strips with hangars (or space for) in the north west?

I have a Rans S6 at Sleap aerodrome. Unfortunately hangarage is like hens teeth and the one I rent is too small to take the Rans without problems (long story).
Does anyone have (or know of) a strip in Cheshire, north Shropshire, north Wales, or south Lancs with hangar space or space for building one?
Thanks!

Your location is listed as Chester, have you thought of Chrisleton? A lovely strip right on your doorstep. (sadly no longer accepting visitors but ok for home based aircraft)

Barton is South Lancs. Very active with people flying similar types. Give Mary a ring on 0161 789 1362 and she'll be happy to discuss hangarage arrangements with you

A very long list for hangarage at Barton so you'll be waiting a while. As far as I know, Mary is still off after falling ill earlier in the year but I may be mistaken. That said, Barton is a great airfield to fly from and I'll be based there for a long time.
