THE WAY AHEAD FOR THE WATERWAYS by Lionel Munk

Chairman lnland Waterways Association puBLrcATroN or rm Waterways White Paper in September, 1967, proved to be a major landmark in the history of the Inland Waterways Association and represented its biggest success to date. Now we at least have a firm base from which to operate our campaign, a base which lays down that, subject to contingencies, by far the greater part of the amenity canal system shall be retained for future use. For the flrst time the Govemment recognised the value of the amenity canals and presented the British Waterways Board with the speciflc duty ol maintaining these amenity waterways in satisfactory condition. But the key words in the above paragraph are "subject to contingencies" and contingencies which exist (at the time of writing) in regard to such waterways as your own Leeds and Liverpool, the Ashton, Shropshire Union and Sheffield and South Yorkshire Canals make it very obvious that in the future I.W.A. is going to be as busy as ever in safeguarding our wonderful waterways, and many of the fights and debates may well be gory ones! This National Rally at Liverpool is part of our effort to save the western end of the Leeds and Liverpool canal by impressing on the local authodties and the general public the great value and possibilities of this splendid navigation. These then are the circumstances which make

it

for I.W.A. (in co-operation with the other waterway and amenity societies, anglers and boat clubs) to be as strong and effective as possible and we would ask you all to join us in this fight to save and develop waterways which are really wonderful and worth preperative

im-

servlng.

JOIN THE INLAND WATERWAYS ASSOCIATION TODAY. You will find a Membership form in

this Rally Brochure.

LIVERPOO L'S SU M MONS 1968 by Martin Grundy Chairman, Rally Committee We in Liverpool are on the one hand excited by the prospect of a great number of boats converging on our City and by the knowledge that the Lord Lieutenant ofthe County Palatine is giving this Rally his patronage and that we ahve the welcome support and practical help of the Lord Mayor and Corporation. On the other hand we are saddened that there are still some people who would turn their backs on the canal,

who prefer to pretend

it is not there

and who are then

surprised and dismayed when they find that it is becoming a dangerous and decaying eyesore. The great Leeds and Liverpool Canal is the last and


t 1

only waterway link in the Norrh of England

berween

East and Wesi. Are we really so short-sight-ed thal we are prepared to see lhis link severed at a time when there is a new upsurge of public confidence in the waterways

system as

a whole followinq the Covernment Whiie

Paper Iast autumn.

Let us not pretend that the stretch from Aintree to Stanley Dock has rhe aestheric appeal of the wildlv beautiful meanderings in the heights'df the pennines. Bui without the workaday lasr 8 miles into Liverpool the continuous ribbon ol navigable water ioinine the two great estuaries of Mersey and Humber wbuld 5e broken. _We can only hope that this Rally will convince rhose who influence public affairs rhdt rh6 local people do nor want to see their \.taterway strangled and rhat $ith foresight and imaginative planning the urban srretches can be made a^positive amenity rather than somerhing to be

ashamed of.

By coming to this Rally whether by boat or as a spectator you will be helping orir cause. Yo'u will not r.grei your Journey. lhere ls an excltement and a grandeur in lhe site, at.rhe top of the locks facing Liverp6ol's Dockland. We have a proud boast in the Alsociation rhal whererer the National Rally is held the canal afterwards remains open and navigable. Liverpool must see to it rhat this record remains unbroken.

THE LEEDS and LIVERPOOL CANAL

bv lan Moss

'rH! ftfDs ANr) LllafRPooL ( ANAI r\ iust abour 2tn vear. old: il is, ot course, dimcult to date axactly the bi(h of a great idea, but the projcct was certainly discussed with inc.easiEg assurance from 1766 to 1769 and an Act, authorising a .apital ofr260,000 was passed by Parliament in 170. Pe$aps the 6rst public mention of the canal in Liverpool was an announcemcnt in "Williamsont Liver pool Advertiser" on January 26th, 1768, "We hear thar th€ navigable canal proposed from thjs port to Leeds in Yorkshire has been,doemed practicable . . .". On the penultimate day of the same yefi an aflnouncement was madc that a meeti[g ". . . had bcen held itr Liverpool on December 9th to rcceive and consider Mr. Brindley's rcpon ol this suney. it wac unanimously agreed lhat . . . application should he made to Parliament tbis present Session".

Work started near thc two ends under thc direction of John Longbolham as Engircer and by 1777 som€ thirty miles had b€en conslructed ai each end from t€eds to Garyrave and from Liverpool to Dean Lock from whcrce the Dougias gave access ro Wigan. The Lrverpool wigan seflion was in facl opcned on Ocloher lqlh, I7,4 "\r;ilh great festivities and rejoicings. At ninc o'clock the proprietoft sailed up the catral in their barge preceded by another filled with music, and retuor€d to Liverpool about one." Twenty-oflc gun salutes, a cold collation, an "elegant dinner at Georget Cofee House", a special

dinner for 215 workren and a day long p€al of b€lls

completed the celebration.

Itr 1794 Liverpool Corporation met some ofthe canal proprietors to discuss "The late extmordinary advance in the price ofcoals coming down the keds Canal"- We may sl.rtrpathisewith them for lhepricc had riseD by25i,in the cotrrse of, few monrh<

The Corpomtion were perhaps concerned that the Canal Comprny scemed morc intercsted in complelitrg the liDe thaD ln pulung lher existing house in ordcr,


although the increase in coal prices hit the proprietors hard the coal tonnage in 1794, at 108,000, is little more than half that carried the previous year. The canal company tackled the coal prices by offering substantially iedriced tolls to those colliers who oflered their wares cheaply in Liverpool, and in considering the purchase of

oitheir own, although whcther the meeting al the "Eagle & Child" in Wigan resulted in any action is not clear. .."i,itGi boats plied on the canal for many years and, esneciallv in ths Liveroool area, lrade must have been brirk foiin 182? there were seven boats daily from Liveroool lo Litherltnd. Rather harshly perhaps onll children below the age of six enjoyed a lare reduction and thrt was to two-thirds of the adult fare. The original Act had mentioned conneclion with the Mersey although there seems to have been little anxiety to effect ihis. It was not in fact till 1846 that the Stanley Dock Branch was cut. From the early 1820's with the canal's main line complete and its conncction to the rest of the canal system (via the Leigh Branch) ensured the Company enjoyed a prosperous existence: the dividend for one year was 34 N and it remained steady at 25L almost throughout the 1840's. Coal, from the pits near Wigan, to Liverpool and Preston was always a major contributor to the canal income and it is appropriate lhat this commodity comprises the remaining traffic on the lrigh Arm (but TO Wigan l). Limestone from quarries near Skipton and on the Summit Level passed down both sides of the Pennines and there was always a very considerablc tonnage of general mer-

until

1871 when four


steam tugs were purchased for service between Appley Lock and Liverpool. Steam propelled short boats came in the early 1880's and these proved so successful that they largely replaced horse drawn traffic west of Burnley. Diesel worked boats gradually replaced others from 1930 onwards - some of the steamers were actually converted but the last steamers operated until the mi-d-1950's and the horse hung on until 1960, the last one being operated by Messrs. Ainscough of Burscough and Parbold. The writer has clear recollection of all three types during the war - when flfty or sixty boats per day passed through Johnson's Hill Locks - and the black pall of "Helen" and

"Anne" could be seen for miles.

The last regular commercial traffic on the main line was coal to Athol Street Gas Works - which ceased in January, 1964. A year earlier the coal traffic from Burnley to Blackburn had come to an end and there has been no regular traffic over the Summit since 1960.

from Crooke to Liverpool

-

We end on pensive note: the Locks from Wigan to Leeds are only sixty-two feet long. Plans for lengthening them were put forward on two occasions in the 1890's when improvements from Liverpool to Blackburn were implemented. Then, as so often before and since, the

financial situation intervened and narrow boats are forever barred from the loveliest part of one of England's most attractive waterways.
