Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, 26th February 2016
I Went on an excursion with some of the lads from Manchester’s IWM North today to the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, where I learned about the canals and their heritage. The journey involved a brief stop for provisions at the M56 Motorway Services.
I took along my DSC-H300 too – in order to take a few pictures to remind me of the day
There were several Interesting pieces on the Manchester Ship canal which we left to make our way to the museum, including items from the Dock Office as well as pictures and models of the boats.
After seeing some wonderful artefacts, I enjoyed a lovely cup of tea in the café to go with my packed lunch, before going on a fact filled trip on a Narrowboat down the Shropshire Union canal.
