Some lovely images from today's voyage from Frodsham back to our winter maintenance berth in Liverpool.
Thanks to many of you for your shots featuring an early morning departure from Sutton Weaver, departing Marsh Lock, approaching Ellesmere Port and then to demonstrate how small we are amongst the big ships, in the 80ft lock at Eastham sharing the lock with two other ships. Then passing Tranmere oil Terminal, Cammel Lairds, and the famous Pier Head.
The Danny is now safely tucked up in Sandon half tide basin thanks to Peel Ports and to Canal & River Trust for your cooperation today.

07/11/2021

The Danny is departing our berth at Sutton Weaver, Frodsham, tomorrow - Monday at 07:30 to catch the tide and head to Liverpool for our winter lay up berth.
Lots of maintenance and general work to do but we will be back, operational we hope by Easter 2022 with some exciting trips and will be back on the Weaver also.
Keep your eyes open for our 2022 program that will be published in a few weeks.

08/10/2021

The Daniel Adamson will be holding a Volunteer Recruitment Day on board at our berth at Sutton Weaver Swing Bridge (WA6 7JA) on Saturday 23rd October from 12:00-16:00.

This recruitment drive is specifically aimed at volunteers looking to join our Engineering Department, which is responsible for all things mechanical in the operation and maintenance of our 1903 coal fired steamship. Experience from a marine background is not essential, as we have a training programme covering all aspects and roles from stoker/fireman up to Chief Engineer. We will be recruiting new volunteers in all other departments too in the New Year, so please come along to find out more if you are interested!

Our operational season for 2021 is drawing to a close and we will be returning to our winter base in Sandon Dock, Liverpool in early November, to carry out our annual maintenance before returning to the Weaver in April 2022. Ideally new volunteers would be willing and able to get to Liverpool and undertake training and familiarisation in our layup period before we return to Sutton Weaver. The Engineering team generally work two or three days a week all year, with cruises from spring until autumn. But, of course, volunteers commit as much time as they wish, to fit in with their own priorities..

If you are interested, come along, meet the team and get involved with keeping a unique part of Britain's Maritime Heritage alive.

We are looking for Cheshire Food & Drink producers to be involved in our cruises during 2022.

Showcase opportunity for Cheshire producers –Imagine promoting your product on its own themed cruise, held on a beautiful heritage vessel.

The 1903 Daniel Adamson Steamship offers cruises along the picturesque River Weaver from May to October, usually selling out with a capacity of up to 80 passengers on cruises which last from 2.5 to 5 hours.

The heritage vessel wishes to offer its 2022 passengers a choice of Cheshire produce during its cruises to buy from its galley which sells alcoholic drinks, hot drinks, soft drinks, snacks, light lunches and cakes. The cruise programme always includes themed cruises – such as its popular gin cruises which the team wish to reinvent for next year using local producers – beer, cheese and wine and rum cruises are also planned – but local producers interested in getting involved are needed.

The cruises are very popular and attract a variety of visitors including steam enthusiasts from across the Uk, visitors looking to celebrate a special occasion, coach groups and families. Private hires also mean a further opportunity as weddings and parties are often booked on the ship. Caterers are often requested for the events and again we would like to recommend Cheshire based companies.

Anyone interested in selling their produce on the ship or get involved with a themed cruise are asked to get in touch – email [email protected] – (we would need producers to be able to drop off their produce at the ship)

Heritage Open Day - Friday Sep 17

On Friday 17th September, The Danny steamship is hosting an Open Day. Between 11am and 4pm visitors are welcome to have a talk and tour revealing the history of the UK’s last remaining operational steamship. Listed 15th on the Register of National Historic Ships, the 1903-built vessel is now a living waterways museum.
Join one of the tours, led by volunteers who dedicate their time and skills to this icon of maritime history.
Learn about the restoration of the former maiden of the Mersey from volunteers who worked tirelessly for 15 years to restore The Danny to her former glory.
Chat with the men and women who give their time to keep The Danny cruising the River Weaver between June and October.
With its heyday in the 1920’s, a century on, The Danny has embraced the latest VR technology so visitors can also drive the steamship. Developed this year, the experience gives guests of all ages the thrill of driving a steamship.
Littlies will be entertained on the The Teddy Bear Trail. The eight costumed bears – having been thoroughly briefed and taken up their positions onboard – are to be checked off on a specially designed map.
Dan Cross, Founder of the Daniel Adamson Preservation Society said:
"The Open Days are really important for the community as it gives us a chance to share stories about the ship's history and engage with people of all ages. Our talks and tours run all day and we welcome families to come aboard too. You never know, someone may love us that much they would like to join us as a volunteer too".
Location: Sutton Weaver Swing Bridge, Cheshire

I'd like to say a big thankyou to all the volunteers who imparted their knowledge and obvious love for 'The Danny' during the recent open day attended by my mum and myself. We both thoroughly enjoyed our visit and look forward to taking in a cruise in the future. Such a beautiful boat with an amazing story to go with it.
My representative went aboard The Danny - Daniel Adamson a 1903 steamship with a unique story for a well-being trip from Acton Bridge to Sutton Weaver, coinciding with World Mental Health Day. It’s hoped this initial event will help build a network that can support the health and wellbeing of surrounding communities - through activities based around The Danny plus engagement with nature and the waterways. Organisations involved included the Canal & River Trust community development team, the Youth Federation, Mind Halton and Halton Health Improvement Team members with responsibility for children & young people, and for adults.
