The complex at Ellesmere Port is vast, so it’s difficult to provide an all encompassing scene to give you a real overview of the place. However, whilst this picture is just a portion of what’s on offer, it does show a number of the key elements which shows you why this is such a good place for a canal museum.
- Canals which still work
- Canals with locks
- Basin areas and moorings
- Lots of brightly painted boats
- Typical canal art
- Working boats and lots more requiring restoration and depicting a good cross-section of the kind of boats which worked the canals
- A huge complex of different building which were used during the heyday of canals
- Volunteers getting stuck in!
