When we first went in 2014,there weren't any bins-you took your black bags to the end of the pontoon each morning ready for them to be picked up.
It was the same when I was there this year too, just put your black bags at the end of the pontoon in the morning and by the evening they had mysteriously disappeared.
I moved onto an adjacent pontoon when I was there as the pontoon I had booked didn't have a water tap and I only have a short water hose, if anyone had rocked up and complained that I was on their spot I would have moved, but nobody did.
Salthouse Dock and Liverpool itself are fantastic destinations for a narrowboater, I will definitely go again.
Head Goon in the Thunderboat Goon Squad. Vacuous moron. A lamebrain who spouts mindless crap.
I think they also put a limit on the number of boats that can go in and out on any specific day, maybe 6?
I was told/read this but 8 came out with us when we left. Maybe they just watch how many come in but are lax on who leaves when? Good there though isn’t it😀
Yes, It's a great place to visit, especially if the Festival of the Sea is in the harbour with all the square riggers and nautical entertainments, with the added bonus of Liverpool won something and the parade with thousands of suporters were right by us Magic!

naughtyfox: The problem with today is that the government is not restricting our movements and activities enough. We need more restrictions, harsher, and for longer, so people really start taking this virus seriously.

dogless: I haven't got a problem with today ... healthy, comfortable, happy, and fortunate ... one of the lucky ones
