The charity making life better by water

Middlewich Canal Wharf


The historic town of Middlewich sits at the junctions of the Middlewich Branch of the Shropshire Union and the Trent & Mersey Canal. It's a fantastic place for a family afternoon out and a great place to explore your local waterways.

Cycle down the towpath and keep an eye out for passing boats, go for a leisurely stroll along the canalside to discover the historic canal junction, or enjoy a relaxing boat trip to see our waterside wildlife.
