Manchester Ship Canal Trip

Posted on: 07/08/2019

On Wednesday, July 31st , an adventurous group from the parish set out by coach to Salford to board the Royal Iris to take us on the Manchester ship canal to Liverpool. Once boarded, and after the late arrival of the pilot, we left Mode Wheel Locks in torrential rain!!

Fortunately, we were under cover and had been able to settle in suitable seats as we were amongst the first passengers to board. An excellent commentary was given by an experienced and knowledgeable guide who regaled us with the geography and history of the ship canal as we passed through and under various bridges and swing bridges. The return from the Trafford Centre via Barton Bridge will never seem the same again after having passed through when the bridge had been swung open for us!!

The weather improved as we travelled and on arrival in Liverpool we had the remains of a sunny afternoon to enjoy. A rather tired group returned to Salford by coach.

All in all, a very pleasant trip, and many thanks to the parish Social Committee for its organisation of the day. Watch this space for the next outing.

A parishioner e-mailed the following; "I don’t have contact details of those who organised the trip today so I wondered if you could thank them from me for the hard work they had obviously put into making the trip such a lovely day out. I really enjoyed it and so did the others with me. Thank you."
