Onto Wigan

After walking the doggies we left Dover Bridge onwards to Liverpool.

Scotsman's Flash was rather impressive

The towpaths on this canal are the best we have seen so far.

Turning to port at Wigan Junction

We emptied the nasties then found the Cart office in Wigan, opening hours 10.00am to 12.00 now that it what I call customer service.....not! We wanted to buy another anti vandal key plus get some info on getting in to Liverpool.

Passing the famous Wigan Pier


And the not so famous DW  Stadium home to Wigan Athletic football club.

Nice floating duck house.

We moored up for the night at Crooke, I rang an old mate of mine from Australia who now lives in Wigan with his wife and 2 lovely daughters, he came down to the boat......

Then we all went to the pub!

Good Times

  1. Make sure you visit a baker's shop such as Pooles or Greggs and try a Slapyead while in Wigan.
