Funeral of William Henry Walker

William Henry Walker will make his last journey afloat ‘Pheonix’ Captained by his good friend Ian Braine on the morning of Friday 21st July at 10am.

Departing from Whaley Bridge Basin, William’s family will celebrate his life and love of the canals with a round trip to Bugsworth Basin.

This was a very special place that was dear to him from his working life with British Waterways.
