The Cheshire Ring

One of the most common routes boaters will embark on when in and around the Cheshire area is The Cheshire Ring. The Cheshire Ring is a circular route in the North West of England – which allows you to travel through a variety of landscapes, such as the hustle and bustle of Manchester city centre, the picturesque views of the Peak District, rural Cheshire and Cheshire Plain. The route includes:


The Cheshire Ring route is 97 miles long, and has a total of 92 locks. We recommend that this type of route should take an average of eight hours a day – which means it would likely take about 10 – 14 nights.

Here at ABC Boat Hire, we offer a variety of routes which encompass The Cheshire Ring – starting at either Anderton Marina, Wrenbury Mill or Whitchurch Marina. Find out more information on our featured routes, and our canal boat locations, from ABC today.
