The Day The Trent and Mersey Canal Collapsed!


We visit the site of the Dutton Breach and revisit the day the Trent and Mersey Canal collapsed after heavy rain and flooding. We moor narrowboat Silver Fox right by the site of the collapse and Colin finds out how they managed to reopen the canal. After another, more recent landslip, closed the canal we arrive just in time as it reopens, enabling us to cruise from Preston Brook to Barnton, taking in the beautiful Cheshire countryside, through Preston Brook, Saltersford, and Barnton Tunnels, before mooring close to the Anderton Boat Lift.
