At Easter this year we cruised to Chester as part of our moving of Shadow from Stockton Top Marina to Tattenhall Marina (we had some time in hand, so we overshot Tattenhall). We had tied up below the city wall, and went to the service in the cathedral on Easter Sunday. We met John and Fiona from nb Epiphany walking along the wall on their way to the service.
Before the service began I had time to walk along to Northgate Locks to see a couple of boats emerging. They were returning from Ellesmere. Now, I'm no good at identifying historic boats (I need lessons from Sarah). Can you tell me anything about them? One is Kangaroo; the other, in the distance in the second photo, is Lamprey.
Grà on test - The September *Canal Boat* is out, and includes my boat test on *Grà* by Finesse Boats. It will be their Crick Boat Show exhibit.
