               Journeys on the Llangollen Canal and the East Lancs Railway

Day 1 Saturday

Lovely Welsh scenery when we get
to the Dee Valley this afternoon. Here we take a ride
on the ‘Stream in the Sky’- the Llangollen Canal -
gliding gently along over the country’s biggest
navigable viaduct. Short drive into Cheshire for dinner,
bed & breakfast at the Forest Hills Hotel

D

Day 2 Sunday

Opened in 1846 for both goods and
workers during the Industrial Revolution, the railway
follows the Irwell Valley for about 12 miles from Bury
to Rawenstall. There is a varied collection of steam
locomotives and vintage vehicles, transport
memorabilia and interactive exhibits. Included journey
during the morning, then return homewards during the
afternoon/evening.

B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

‘More historic transport please’. This is a recurring request from many of our regular customers on the 2 day tours. We are, therefore, going a bit further from home in 2019 to offer you a canal trip in North Wales and a train ride in Lancashire. And it’s no ordinary canal either, having the country’s biggest navigable viaduct over the Dee Valley. Plus the East Lancs Railway is a premier, award-winning attraction.

 

FOREST HILLS HOTEL www.bestwestern.co.uk. The Best Western Forest Hills Hotel is a fantastic stay in Frodsham. The hotel is situated just off the M56 yet set amidst beautiful Cheshire countryside. Stunning panoramic views across the Cheshire plains and

the Mersey Estuary await all who stay. The restaurant is often praised, as is the accommodation for its high quality and standards

of cleanliness. All the usual facilities. Free WiFi
