A relaxing 4 hour cruise along the scenic River Weaver in Cheshire, from Sutton Weaver to Anderton Boat Lift passing through 2 locks and 2 swing bridges.  Our vessel is the historic Daniel Adamson, a 1903 steam ship with fabulous Art Deco interiors, affectionately known as “The Danny”.  You can combine this with a visit to the Anderton Boat Lift to make an interesting day of it.

The cruise is from 12 noon to 4 pm so the plan is to drive to Anderton (opening time 9.30 am to 5.30 pm), park at the Boat Lift car park (postcode CW9 6FW – £3 all day), with time to visit the lift and the free visitor centre either before or after the cruise.  For further details see:

A coach will collect us from the car park at 11.20 am and take us to the ship. 

Download a full description of the voyage.

For catering, there is a coffee shop/café at the lift, and a restaurant nearby.  There is a bar on-board The Danny with hot and cold drinks but only a limited supply of cakes and sandwiches, so passengers are welcome to bring picnics.

Anyone with limited mobility should be aware that access between decks on the ship is by steps, and there are also steps on the coach and the gangway.  The only dogs permitted are assistance dogs.

The cost for the cruise is £40 per head, and we have provisionally booked 20 spaces, although this can be increased if we know early enough.  To reserve places please give/send a deposit of £5 each to our Treasurer, Pete Gurney at one of our public meetings or by post.  Travel to Anderton will be by private car, but for a friendly journey and to save fuel please consider car-sharing.  If you are likely to have spare space or would like a lift, then tell Pete where you will be starting from and we will try to suggest a convenient pick-up.
