Short Breaks from Whitchurch


The ultimate in gentle cruising, the short breaks from Whitchurch have very few locks and pass through peaceful countryside.

Cruising west there are only two locks and a few lift-bridges before you need to start your return, even on a four night midweek break. As Shropshire gives way to Wales the scenery becomes steeper, though the canal route does not. Instead the route follows contours along the hillsides and in 4 nights you may even experience the two magnificent aqueducts, firstly Chirk, together with a 450 metre tunnel and then the superb Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, one of the wonders of the Inland Waterways.

For those wanting a little more activity, cruising east towards the English end of this fascinating canal is equally beautiful countryside but with a few more locks including the impressive 3-lock staircase set at Grindley Brook.
