Chester to Anderton Boat Lift

From Chester it was a retrace of our journey but a slight detour turning left at Barbridge Junction and along the 10 mile stretch of the Middlewhich Branch of the Shropshire Union
There was a huge canal breach here the year before, which closed the section for nearly a year.
Then turning left onto the Trent & Mersey Canal at Kings Lock Junction and up to Anderton, where the famous 50′ Boat Lift is.
We didn’t use it this year, but had been down and up it in 2018. Pictures of us there in 2018.
We moored for a few days outside the Lion Salt Works and museum. An amazing place which looks almost derelict from the canal but fascinating inside and well worth a visit to see how salt was produced and the heritage links with the canal.
Meeting up with good friends Jean and David from Oxford, ex boaters. A great few days with them visiting Ellsmere Port Canal Meuseum, Weaver Hall, Arley Hall & Gardens and having a memorable time with them.
