'RMS Veritas' Moore 11th December 2016
The upper reaches of the canal have been very quiet towards the end of 2016. It appears that the cement traffic to Weaste wharf has moved to Garston docks now. Probably a knock on effect of the canal being shut for months at Barton due the the collapsed bridge. At the moment the only regular traffic is the feeder service between Liverpool and Irlam wharf. 'RMS Veritas' is seen here covering for 'Thea II' which is undergoing repairs on her damaged bridge wing at Ellesmere Port docks. Taken at a rather dull Moss Lane, Moore 11/12/16.
