We are enjoying the river Weaver so much we have decided to spend longer on it and go from one end to the other. The picture above shows the massive chemical factory at the western end and which is over a mile long.
This is Weston Marsh lock and it drops boats down on to the Manchester ship canal. We are not allowed on that canal so we have to head back up the Weaver towards Winsford which is the start of the navigable river .
We have now done one half of the river Weaver and just have to do the other half down to Winsford. This river has been such a pleasant surprise and as Alf said in one of his comments it is a true gem of the connected waterways, and we certainly agree with that.
