Waterways Restoration Showcase

Title Waterways Restoration Showcase
Organiser IWA Chester & Meresyside Branch

In a unique partnership aimed at promoting the work of canal and waterway restoration societies to the public , The Inland Waterway Association (IWA) is to host an exhibition with many of the societies involved in major restoration projects in the North West at the invitation of the team running the steam ship Daniel Adamson (The “Danny”). This “showcase” of the societies work and achievements will be held on the promenade deck of the  “Danny” on the weekend of the 21st  and 22nd  September and entry at the exciting event will be entirely free.

The vessel is moored outside the Maritime Museum in the  Liverpool’s Albert Dock complex and it will be open to the public from 10-30am till 4.00pm on both days.

There will be ten societies exhibiting from as far afield as the Lancaster Canal to the North, Montgomery canal to the south and Manchester, Bolton & Bury canal to the east. Experts from the societies will be on hand to explain their current work and exciting plans to bring back into use some of the nation’s important transport history assets.

The 1903 built steamship is herself a wonderful example of restoration in the North West being fully restored to working order in a £5million restoration project part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

In the ship’s opulent art deco styled lounges visitors will be entertained to a full programme of informative presentations from a number of the organisations present.

The ship will be open for tours and light refreshments served in the galley.
