River Weaver Navigation Society

River Weaver Navigation Society

The River Weaver Navigation Society was founded in 1997 and is dedicated to preserving, protecting and improving the River Weaver, from Winsford to its confluence with the Manchester Ship Canal.

The River Weaver Navigation Society cares about:

People and Recreation - improving facilities for boaters, walkers, horse riders, cyclists and anglers.

History - preserving and protecting historical features; including locks, bridges and boatyards.

Wildlife - animals, birds, plants and trees all have their place in, on and around the river.

The River Weaver stretches over 50 miles from its source in the Peckforton Hills to its confluence with the Manchester Ship Canal.

Look out for the River Weaver when visiting Wrenbury, Audlem, Nantwich, Winsford, Northwich, the Anderton Boat Lift, Barnton, Saltersford, Dutton, Frodsham and Weston Point.
