LCL - The Liverpool Canal Link

Wednesday, 13 April 2011

Not a BB boating trip but a visit to Liverpool Docks which is now on the list of must do trips for next year. We had to go to a 60th wedding anniversary at Wrexham in March and decided to have a few days in Liverpool. A city we have always wanted to visit and our time in the city was excellent with glorious sunshine and warm to boot- a real bonus in March. A few pictures of the dock area associated with the Liverpool Link Canal (LCL) Looking at the converted warehouses around Salthouse Docks with the new pontoons put in for a boat show in May which has now been cancelled. Part of the new Liverpool Link Canal which runs under the new Museum of Liverpool and through Mann Island Lock into Canning Dock.

A view of Salthouse Dock with the BW moorings which have water and electricity with the Liverpool Wheel in the background.

A view of Salthouse Dock from the wheel.

My new camera has a panoramic facility which shows a view of the buildings around Salthouse Docks.
A view of the Liverpool waterfront from the ferry on the Mersey.

The 3 Graces from the Mersey - they are The Royal Liver Building, The Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building. The building that looks like an open mouth is the new terminal for the Mersey Ferry.

BW have an excellent Skipper's Guide on their website and you have to book a passage to the docks starting at Aintree through the Wigan office on 01942 405700.
