Good Morning Everyone,

A trip down Manchester Ship Canal might not seem everyone's cup of tea but my friend and I bought each other tickets for our adjacent birthdays.

We started at Salford Quays, Manchester and sailed to Albert Docks in Liverpool.

The day was overcast, which a bit of a disappointment, but the sights and the commentary helped to overcome that.

We learned how this wonderful feat of Victorian engineering linked Manchester with the sea, ensuring its economic development in the 20th century.

There were many obstacles to overcome especially with so many important roads crossing the canal. There are quite a few swing bridges. This is one of them. I just loved how it appeared like the mouth of huge alligator as it moved out of our way!

Many thanks for stopping by and sharing the delights of Northern England, Bev :-)
