Boating 2016

From PubNight

Here are the dates and the crew I think we'll have. Nick probably won't do the whole thing and is tending towards something like Wigan-to-Wigan (maximises break from work against weekend disruption, maximises travelling with different people) but is not certain yet.

The trip is here (right click and open in a new tab)

Our booking on the Liverpool Link has been confirmed so we're good to go.

Use the discussion tab on this page to add comments, ideas etc.

Tarleton is in the route both ways just so everyone gets the chance to do it but timings are quite slack in both directions (But more so on the return trip) so we have time to do detours like Chester, Manchester, The Bhurpore, The Weaver.....

The Overnights in bold are the ones we have to do - the others are where the planner thinks we are going to stop.

We have space for 5 on board if one person chooses to sleep on the floor (people usually take it in turns)

Passage into the Docks will be on Friday which is why we stop at Lydiate on Thursday. We'll stay all day on Saturday and then leave the docks at 08:00 on the Sunday morning.

The planned route suggests that we'd be at Bremilows Bridge No 100 on the first night but we know that even with stopping to visit several pubs including one that was a bit of walk we can make it to The Badger (which is another 5 miles, 1¼ furlongs and 2 locks further on)
