Memory Lane Travel Present a very special day out onboard the steamship ‘The Daniel Adamson’

The Daniel Adamson is a remarkable survivor from the steam age and a most unusual vessel. A small but incredibly powerful canal tug, she was built to tow long strings of barges laden with goods from the inland towns of Cheshire and the Potteries to the great seaport of Liverpool. She made her appearance on the Mersey at a time when old-fashioned sailing ships still jostled for space on the Liverpool waterfront with the great steamships and ocean liners of the Edwardian era.

1936 the Ralph Brocklebank was chosen as the official director’s launch. Early that summer she was given a radical refit and her name changed to that of the ship canal’s founding father and first MSCC chairman, Daniel Adamson.

Her technical upgrade was a straightforward case of making her ‘fit for purpose’. The wheelhouse and bridge were raised and she acquired a new upper deck and two saloons, making her taller and more ‘top heavy’ than the other tugs. The story of the renovation of the interiors, however, is more intriguing. The directors had requested a ‘roomy and artistic effect’ and local companies were invited to come up with designs for the remodelling.

Furniture makers Waring & Gillow of Bold Street, Liverpool, were consulted about the interior design and decor. But in the end the contract went to rival Bold Street firm Heaton Tabb & Co. This company was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Belfast shipbuilders Harland & Wolff Ltd, and as such had experience of fitting out the interiors of some of the grandest Atlantic liners in the world.

Today we coach you to the Waterways Museum Ellesmere port where there will be time to visit the museum if you wish entrance fee to the museum is NOT included.

We board The Danny as she is known for our 1100 departure, sailing for approximately one hour to reach the entrance to the Weaver at Marsh Lock, the location of which is dominated by the vast Castner Kellner chemical plant, a reminder of the local industrial heritage.Within a mile of leaving Marsh lock we pass through the recently refurbished Sutton Weaver Swing Bridge near to the historic market town of Frodsham, and on through some of the rivers most stunning scenery for nearly an hour, winding our way towards Dutton Locks.Shortly after leaving Dutton we arrive at our destination just before Acton Swing Bridge. during our cruise you will be served a bowl of traditional Scouse with Pickled cabbage and bread, after leaving the Danny we will spend the remainder of the afternoon exploring locally returning approx 1800.

This wonderful day out will cost £59.50
