Liverpool Docks to Manchester City Centre

​We’ll have spent a few days in Salthouse docks catching up with friends before our next guests arrive. 

We have passage booked on the 29th July so after a night in Salthouse Docks with our NEW guests, we’ll depart bright and early on route to Burscough – where we’ll dispose of rubbish, top up the tank (and perhaps  the wine cellar) and stay for a night on the visitor moorings. 

Next day we’ll be cruising through the lovely towns of Parbold and Appley Bridge, before we enter the outskirts of Wigan.

Chances are, we’ll tie up for the night around the dry dock are so we can take a walk along to Wigan pier…  If our guests are early risers, they may want to take a walk up the Wigan 21 lock flight the following morning… BE WARNED it’s up hill all the way… well, until you turn around and return to the boat that is J . 

Our next stopping point will be Leigh before we head back in to Manchester City centre where our guests will depart the following morning and we continue our journey back to Wakefield.
