We have arrived!
The weather overnight has been awful, cold, heavy rain and strong winds.
Swing bridge 9 can only be used at certsin times to avoid causing traffic disruption. We had to get through before 7:30, so we set off at about 6:15.
We reached the top of Stanley locks in plenty of time and waited for the CRT guys to arrive. The weather did improve a little, but it was still very windy and raining as we entered the docks.
The entrance into the docks is fairly dramatic and passes through several of Liverpool’s historic docks, and at one point through a new tunnel right underneath the Museum of Liverpool. Our mooring is in Salthouse dock and immediately before that we passed through Albert Dock, now the main feature in the dockland tourist area.
Unfortunately due to tne atrocious weather we didn’t get any photos.
