Kennet visits Liverpool this wknd
10 August 2012
Kennet, a 1947 working short boat, has been newly restored for £70,000 by the Leeds & Liverpool Canal Society and is making her first visit to Liverpool.
The boat was built for Canal Transport Limited in 1947 by Yarwoods of Northwich.
The purpose of the restoration project is for the Kennet to travel the 127 miles of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, taking canal heritage to communities along the route.
Kennet, which is usually berthed at Barnoldswick, close to the Lancashore and Yorkshire border, will be open to the public at Salthouse Dock (opposite the Hilton Hotel) on Saturday and Sunday, 11am - 4.30pm.
