Important Notice 19th March 2018

There has been a breach on the Middlewich Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal. The Middlewich Branch connects the Trent & Mersey Canal just south of Middlewich town to the Shropshire Union Canal at Barbridge Junction, a distance of about 10 miles. This means that the Four Counties Ring is not currently possible.

Cruising is still available from Anderton south towards Kidsgrove on the Trent and Mersey, or the Macclesfield Canal towards Marple. North is available to Manchester and / or Wigan which includes the southern stretch of the Leeds Liverpool Canal. The Anderton boat lift can also still be used to go down onto the Weaver.
