He posted some photographs of his visit on social media channel Twitter and said: “Been round this wonderful nostalgic interactive archive library study, through our historical past, which is part of
@NWMuseum organisation based here at Ellesmere Port.”
The Boaty Theatre Company tweeted: “We met the lovely
