– stagnation evasion!
Longer Cruises of several weeks or months
Back through Wigan onto the Leigh Branch and the Bridgewater mainline, via Trafford Park, with a nice mooring at Stretford.
Much more impressed with Liverpool after an exciting transit through the docks followed by a self-guided whistle stop tour.
A trip home for snagging builders, broken bow thrusters and getting into position for our trip down into Salthouse Docks.
A stop at Parbold and exploring the Rufford Branch preparing to moor up for another trip down South.
Unimpressed by Manchester we set off in the wake of the Water Womble up the Leigh Branch through to Wigan.
The Lower Peak Forest, a pit stop in Droylsden, a night in Piccadilly and a nightmare in the Rochdale Nine
