Easter Gathering of Historic Boats at Ellesmere Port

A flotilla of boats from Chester will launch the start of the weekend and boats will have the opportunity to moor in the recently opened upper basin.  The lively long weekend will include a fine folk programme combined with inspirational workshops, family and boat activities for all ages.  There will be the opportunity to have “Behind the Scenes” explorations of the boat store in Rossfield Road where the vessels raised from the top basin are being stored and worked on.

Tell us about Winding Holes!

Have you spotted a winding hole that's been chained off, or now has boats permanently moored in it, or where the width's been reduced? Please let us know so we can lobby navigation authorities to try to get these vital areas improved or reinstated. HNBC carried out a joint survey with the Inland Waterways Association because both organisations are concerned about the gradual loss of these turning points.  The survey results are now being studied, but if you spot anything new, please let us know anyway by emailing navigation@hnbc.org.uk.
