Friday 8 August 2014


The usual weather story of cool, overcast in the morning and sunny/warm in the afternoon which coincided with our arrival in Manchester.  The Bridgewater canal remains vastly wide and very straight through the city, passing within metres of the Trafford shopping centre. Having accidentally found a place to fill with water, empty cassettes and dump rubbish we progressed to our meeting place with our youngest son - a canal-side pub/restaurant of course. We moored overnight there.
Our first impression of Manchester is favourable. They seem to have perfected the knack of keeping old warehouses and industrial units in use and good condition, whilst replacing obsolete ones sympathetically and maintaining the overall ambience of the canal area. Top marks to those responsible.
Stoke take note.
