'Loach' Runcorn Old Quay 13th July 2016
'Loach' passing Runcorn Old Quay inward for Wigg wharf 13/07/16. This traffic was unloaded at Frodsham wharf for many years but moved to Runcorn docks circa 2013 due to dredging issues on the river Weaver. As of 2016 the grain is now discharged at the recently reinstated Wigg Island wharf which is next to the construction site of the new Mersey gateway bridge crossing. The grain is moved by road from here to Nelstrops Albion Flour Mills, Stockport 13/07/16.
