Had a lovely time with fellow shipmates. Feeding the ducks on the way. This is something that will suit young and old. Not long enough for the youngsters to get board, and the older people to stiffen up. The skipper was brilliant with everyone.

We'll worth seeing Salts Mill from the canal. Only £4 a seat for a 30 minute trip. They also cater for private trips and children's parties.

Just had a short pleasant trip on the canal, it is good value for money and seeing the mill from the canal side gives a different perspective.
