Ramsdell Hall Railings

A dull day, which started cool, and warmed as we travelled.

Passing Alton’s home mooring, Jo and I had a lovely evening out with Brian & Ann Marie at The Wharf in Macclesfield, a great traditional pub with a real pub atmosphere. Was great to have a good catch up on all our news.

We are moored at Ramsdell Hall railings, The plaque reads:-

The railings
restored

2008/2009

Age takes its toll on us all - and
the Ramsdell Hall railings were
no exception. Over nearly two
centuries, some sections had
become badly damaged.

Thankfully, in 2008, Macclesfield
Canal Society, Congleton Borough
Council and British Waterways
managed to raise funds and
work together to restore the
railings and the stonework
to their former glory.

We are going to spend the bank holiday weekend here before continuing our journey south.
