Heaven and Hell? On the Barnton Cut
Heaven and Hell? On the Barnton Cut
The Barnton Cut is the canalised portion of the River Weaver, built 1832-5 to improve navigation, between Saltersford Locks and Winnington. The photo shows some of the soda ash storage at Wallerscote soda ash works, Winnington - formerly ICI and now owned by Brunner Mond and seemingly partially derelict. This section of the river used to be busy with boats, including quite sizeable sea-going vessels carrying chemicals from the Wallerscote and Winnington works. These days it seems only the occasional maintenance craft or leisure boat would disturb the tranquility of the swan family. Taken from the riverside path.
