The Weaver, Worsley and Chester June 2022

A trip together (Howard, Jean,Laurie Mary) from Anderton Marina initially heading down onto the Weaver, then north onto the Bridgewater canal.
Our planned journeys on northern canal across the Pennines had to be called off as the CRT progressively announced canal closure due to lack of water. tips for future years, start cruising early and beat the water shortages.

Highlights of the trip (so Far) have included:

  • A lift down to the Weaver and back up on the Anderton boat lift.
  • Trying out the new headlights through several tunnels.
  • Dunham Massey house and gardens.
  • RHS gardens Bridgewater at Worsley.
  • Mooring at Worsley by the Packet house
  • Seeing Chester races
  • Mooring up for a few days in Chester

By now all attempts at tracking the cruising hours using the Tachometer were futile, all cruising times and engine hours are now extrapolated from Victron logging data.
