Ellesmere Port and Chester

A fantastic day today, which started with a quick visit to Ellesmere Port. The Waterways Museum hadn't opened yet, but a gate was open so we had a look round the basins. We're planning to come this way in September, and wanted to work out the lay of the land.

We then went on to Chester for a look at the Northgate staircase locks, and the canal below the city walls.  Our return route took us up on the walls, looking down on the canal.

We had lunch at The Boot Inn at Willington with my sister and my little neice, before a walk with them in the afternoon.

More pictures when I've got a better connection.
