2002 : River Weaver from Weston Marsh Lock
The River Weaver has long been used for the transport of salt from Cheshire.
In 1732 the river was made navigable for 40 ton barges as far as Winsford, and has been much developed since then.
The chimney on the right is part of the Runcorn chemical works.
The Manchester Ship Canal is straight ahead.
