'Little Jack' Frodsham quay 04/03/14
Former Henty Oil bunker barge Little Jack (1969) usually found on the Mersey or around Liverpool docks has been laid up for a few years but has now found a new home at Frodsham on the river Weaver. The wharf here has been devoid of barges for about a year since the unloading operation for the grain barges moved to Runcorn docks at the start of 2013. It is thought that Little Jack may be converted to a dry cargo barge to join there others on the grain traffic.
