From September to April, the Society joins with the Chester & Merseyside Branch of the Inland Waterways Association for a series of talks which are open to members and guests alike.  Subjects covered include many waterway related subjects including other restoration projects in the country, local history in our area, and general  transport and industrial history related topics.


The events take place at the Rolt Centre of the National Waterways Museum at South Pier Road,
Ellesmere Port, CH65 4FW.  The museum is ten minutes walk from Ellesmere Port Station on the Merseyrail Wirral line and by exit 9 of the M53 where there are plenty of parking facilities.



Meetings begin at 7.45pm. Entrance is free, and visitors are welcome
