A NEW pontoon has given more moorings at Northwich on the Weaver.

The pontoon at Baron's Quay in Northwich officially opened this week in an attempt to bring more business to the town, Alan Tilbury reports.

This 300ft pontoon will accommodate boats near the town centre and was installed at a cost of £175,000 involving Cheshire West and Chester Council.

Cllr Brian Clarke, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, explained:

“Northwich has always turned its back over the years on its biggest asset—the river.

 “We always wanted to make the river one of the shining features of the town and it has always been an aspiration to get boats coming from places like Anderton Boat Lift down to Barons Quay, stopping there and bringing life into the area.”
