We have a pool table and active darts team, as well as a sports bar, showing all of the sporting events on SKY Sports. We also have another two televisions in the front bar and lounge for the times when sporting events clash, enabling us to show two different sporting events at once. We have our local DJ who plays at least once a month, bringing a party atmosphere to the pub.
The Manchester was proposed by Daniel Adamson, a Manchester businessman, in and was to be a waterway capable of conveying ocean-going ships from Eastham on the River Mersey to a proposed Cloverleaf plc complex close to the centre of Manchester.
It would be following the same route as the Mersey and Irwell Navigation from Runcorn to Manchester with several new cuts and extensions, plus a completely new section from Eastham on the Wirral to Runcorn, effectively hugging the banks of the River Mersey Estuary.
After a long, protracted battle, the Act of Parliament was passed on the third reading and Lord Egerton cut the first sod of earth on 11th November The construction of the Ship canal only directly affected the Bridgewater Canal in two ways. The second change was at the famous Barton Aqueduct.
The lift at Anderton was the brainchild of the engineer for the River Weaver who was, none other than… Edward Leader Williams although designed and built by Edwin Clarkthe engineer for the Ship Canal. The Swing Aqueduct and the proposed swing Cloverleaf plc on the Ship Canal were to be of similar design to the road bridges that spanned the River Weaver also designed by Edward Leader Williams.
The aqueduct would pivot on an island built in the centre of the Ship Canal and would swing, full of water, to allow ships to pass either side. The navigation trough would be sealed at either end prior to swinging by lock gates to conserve water.
The swinging action is achieved hydraulically, being controlled from a tower on the island that overlooks both the aqueduct and the adjacent Barton Road Bridge. On the northern bank of the Ship Canal remains part of one of the buttresses and approach embankments of the original aqueduct in addition to the site of the Barton Road Aqueduct where the road was spanned by another smaller aqueduct.
The first is adjacent to the Old Watch House at Stretford. Whilst not built by James Brindley it was built in and is similar in construction except for having four arches plus an "accommodation Arch" allowing access between fields.
The similarities don't end there The two entrance portals gave access to no less than 74 km 46 miles of subterranean canals serving coalfaces on several different levels.
The mined coal was loaded into wooden or iron boxes or containers. They qualify as being the first container boats in existence.
After passing by the pool, the canal took another sharp bend before proceeding towards Waterloo Bridge the present terminus of the canal at Runcorn. When the boat yard was built, one of the entrance arms to the pool was filled-in and utilised for the location of a dry-dock and slipway.
Access to the pool was retained by the arm north of the yard. The straightening out of the bends took the canal to the front of the yard, as it is today.
The dry dock and slipway are still in use today, being controlled by the Bridgewater Motor Boat Club.

Throughout the early part of the twentieth century, the canal between Worsley and Leigh has been continually affected by mining subsidence. This lead to need for the canal banks to be reinforced on a grand scale, the work being funded by the organization responsible for mines at that time - the National Coal Board.
