Meet the North West's canal restorers on SS 'Daniel Adamson'. Don't miss this unique event when 10 of the leading restoration societies come together to promote the waterway movement generally and the specific benefits of their individual projects.

The steamship 'Daniel Adamson' will be the venue for this exciting event, the boat having been recently restored in a £5 million HLF supported project. The ten societies come from the Lancaster Canal to the north, the Montgomery Canal in the south and the Manchester, Bolt & Bury canal to the east.

Experts from each of the societies will be on hand to explain their current work and exciting plans to bring back into use some of the nation's important transport history assets.

In the "Danny's" opulent art deco styled lounge visitors will be entertained to a full programme of presentations whilst the IWA and CRT will have stands on the quayside. Jim Forkin, Chairman of IWA Chester & Merseyside branch said that this exciting event would showcase the work of all the societies in the North West in their efforts to bring canals back to life. The North West has a 250 year history of great transport and industrial heritage whilst recent canals, such as the Liverpool Link, have been proven to increase economic and leisure benefits at a local level.

Free entry to the showcase and presentations.
