The Breach at Middlewich

- Floating Dreams

Back in March of this year, (2018), due to a paddle being left up on an nearby lock gate, a substantial breach of the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union canal occured which has rendered passage along this streach to and from Middlewich impossible. For us at FloatingDreams.co.uk Narrowboat Holiday Hire, this prevented trips along the Cheshire and Four Counties Ring routes.

Passage part way along the canal from Nantwich is still possible and we highly recommend it as part of a holiday as it is a beautiful stretch. The marinas at Venetian and Aqueduct are well worth a visit...the cafe at Venetian serves a particularly fine breakfast....

News is good regarding the extensive repairs required and we are hopeful that the canal will be open again for the 2019 season. We will of course keep you up to date with the situation as we are keen to see the route reopen as soon as possible.

Best wishes from the FloatingDreams.co.uk team....
