Q & A

Is there a Mersey Crossing chart?

We are taking our narrowboat across the Mersey from the MSC to Liverpool and cannot find a chart with the relevant bit of the river. Can you help?

Have a search of the paper based chart portfolio of the Hydrographic Office
cataolgue.ukho.gov.uk/ and you should be able to find the relevant sea charts- however, they might not be of best use to narrowboaters, unless you have sea experience.
You might be better contacting the Manchester Ship Canal Company, and they will recommend suitable charts, and advice for the river. Also, the Mersey Pilots Association will probably be able to help.

Glad to be of help- hope Phyllis May II enjoys the crossing!
