Sounds grim doesn't it. Not at all! We are moored in the basin at the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port.

we decided on a third night. Costs are £6.50 per person the first night. This gives free access to museum. £4 per boat per night after that.
I had, yes had, to go to Cheshire Oaks Outlet Village, yesterday to collect Alistair's birthday present. Not stocked at the outlet shop but they ordered it at 1330 on Monday. There at 1300 yesterday.
