Our route suggestions


Mid Week Break to Nantwich

With 4 nights on board a perfect route is to head south towards Middlewich, turning right on to the Middlewich Branch of the Shropshire Union canal. Once you reach the Barbridge Junction you could turn left and cruise for a couple more hours where you would reach your turnaround point of the historic Cheshire market town of Nantwich.
This route is great for combining locks with countryside and canal side pubs with sightseeing.


10 Day Cheshire Ring Cruise

With 10 days to complete the Cheshire Ring (anit-clockwise recommended), you will have the opportunity to experience the canals from every angle. From rural countryside to the hustle and bustle of sailing through Manchester City Centre.
This route is best suited for experienced boaters and includes staircase locks, city and countryside cruising. This route includes 3 tunnels.
