Ferry alongside the Mersey

26.05.12.

The photograph below of either the ‘Tulip’ or ‘Royal Daffodil’ Mersey ferry travelling along the Manchester Ship Canal twice weekly from Liverpool during the summer months. Although the image looks like the boat has run aground. It is really sailing along the canal but, sandwiched between the (north) raised banks of Frodsham Score and the  Marsh Farm fields (south) in the foreground. The ferry enters the ship canal at Eastham locks on the Wirral and travels to Salford Quays, returning the following day.

If you’re looking for a budget cruise with really close views of Frodsham Score, Runcorn Bridge and Wigg Island then contact the Mersey ferry company online (there’s even a bar onboard!). A return coach is available at the end of the line. The last time I saw the price list it was  £37.00 per adult.
