Canal Boat Holiday Guides for England & Wales
The Middlewich Branch will be repaired before the start of the 2019 season! :-)
Important Information - Please Read
You may have already heard? ...but there has been an unfortunate structural problem with the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire union canal... we are hoping that the Canal & River Trust will resolve this quickly, though it is likely to take months and not weeks to resolve. This does mean that access to Nantwich, Chester, Llangollen and the fully completed Four Counties Ring is prevented until they do.... unfortunately this is outside of our control. We are expecting the 2019 season to be uneffected.
However, the canal holiday world does not only involve these routes! ...there is still lots of adventure and expereince on our other amazing canals which you can still explore! ....Marple, Macclesfield Canal, Peak Forest Canal, Lymm and onward to Castlefield and the amazing Manchester Science & Industry Museum! ...then there’s the Trent & Mersey section of the Four Counties Ring! The Caldon Canal! ...these routes offer the same canal excitement, relaxation and adventure on our boats!! ..if you would like to give us a call for help planning your holiday on (+44) (0)1606 833668 please do so ...we will also be posting more on these routes in the very near future! ....we will keep you posted on the canal repair as well....

Canal holiday route guides..
We offer 3 different canal route guides, covering all the routes we offer. The Pearson's Canal Companions, these guides have been chugging along 'the cut' for thirty years; conveying facts and figures, insight and entertainment, wit and wisdom: from Brentford to Burscough, from Shardow to Shapness, from Tipton to Todmorden. All manner of folk have been encouraged to explore the inland waterways using these guides, which have become as much part of tradition as their subject matter.
Pearson's Canal Companions have achieved a high status with canal users of all kinds. These lively, colourful and committed books are generally regarded as the most detailed, informative and entertaining guides to the inland waterways. Each of the guides we offer cover the routes with large scale and highly detailed maps accompanied by a wide ranging commentary, descriptions of waterside towns and villages, and itemised listings on eating & drinking, shopping, visitors centres, public transport and boating facilities.
