Runcorn Locks Restoration Society would like to take you on a journey down memory lane on a guided walk along a section of the Bridgewater Canal between Waterloo Bridge in Runcorn to the Manchester Ship Canal.

Although this section of the Canal has been out of operation for many years, the walk is filled with interesting facts and snippets of life on a working canal.
