Start From Blackwater Marina

On this popular countryside route the locks are well spaced for easy cruising.

You can choose to travel to Chester and then retrace your steps back to the marina or continue along the Shropshire Union main line to it's historic terminal on the River Mersey at Ellesmere Port. Mooring in Chester is within easy reach of the walled city centre with its medieval 'rows' where there are a variety of shops, galleries and the majestic cathedral.

Chester Zoo is just a short walk from the canal. The fascinating Boat Museum at Ellesmere Port is a few locks beyond Chester, near to the junction with the Manchester Ship Canal. The museum has an extensive collection of preserved inland waterway craft and display areas in many of the former warehouses.
