The journey downstream took us back past the lift and then the somewhat industrial face of the Weaver......albeit not a lot of industry going on.
|Whinnington Swing Bridge, another low headroom, but none of these bridges have to be swung for us, although we could not afford to have too much on the roof.|
|Part of the huge ICI works just a bit further downstream....now sadly abandoned. One of the lock keepers told us that there were plans for 17,000 private homes to be built on the site!|
|So we went through Saltisford Lock to see what the moorings were like below.|
|The ,moorings looked good, we have become used to the high banks now.|
