From the Leeds Liverpool Canal to the Albert Dock

30th July 2014
We met Tom and Jon on the Leeds Liverpool canal at the top of the flight of locks down to Stanley Dock. We then travelled with them to the Albert Dock and then into Salthouse Dock where they are staying for 10 days.

 The waterways guys were fantastic.

If like John you found that tricky to follow, there's a very clear 'Skipper's Guide' at http://canalrivertrust.org.uk/canals-and-rivers/liverpool-canal-link.

3 years and 9 months

That's how long I haven't had a tumour in my bladder. After 11 and a half years of this cancer, that is very pleasing :-)
