Trip to Anderton
We were lucky in getting a boat ride through the Barnton Tunnel too as the man agreed to take us despite nobody else around for 1 o'clock trip ( it was quarter past by this time). So nice to have the boat to ouselves and even a bar onboard for a cool beer and drinks for the kids. The 80minute trip passed some nice old canal side cottages and boats, ducklings and other watery treats. I could have done without the musak of 60's hits on the boat though.
Also looked round the Anderton Visitors Centre and watched a film abou the boat lifts history etc.
Then a shorter walk home along the river and later traditional english fish and chips and mushy peas!
