All aboard for history at boat museum.

THE Ellesmere Port Boat Museum is taking a trip back in time this Easter with a weekend full of Victorian entertainment.

The museum aims to recreate scenes from everyday Victorian life, including games which promise to engage the imaginations of all ages.

Traditional working narrow boats will be moored at the museum all weekend and owners will be on hand to share their experiences with visitors.

Mike Turpin of the Boat Museum Society is encouraging visitors to see the historic tunnel tug Worcester, following its restoration funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the society.

The event runs from April 18 until 21. The museum has a free car park and can be found off junction 9 M53. Call 0151355 5017 for info.
