Unfortunately, David Hunter is no longer able to come on Friday but we have been able to get Graham Wallace from the Runcorn Locks Restoration Society. He will be speaking and showing a short film which addresses the opportunity to restore the locks from Runcorn down to the Ship Canal. This restoration will be made possible following the realignment of roads to serve the new Mersey crossing. Graham’s talk will explain how the coming of the new bridge will affect the old Bridgewater route to the Ship Canal and will therefore create a new cruising ring.
The original speaker, David Hunter, has promised to come next year.
