Middlewich Boating and Sailing Holidays

Including narrowboats, river cruisers, yacht charter, cruising, based or starting in Middlewich.

Middlewich is one of Britain's chief salt-producing towns. For 200 years it was the centre of the Roman salt industry and it is only in relatively recent times that the Roman method of extracting salt by boiling in huge pans was abandoned at Middlewich for the modern system of vacuum extraction.

Many local houses were built by the waterways companies and a lot of these dwellings had adjacent stables for the horses which pulled the barges. Commercial use of the canals declined over the years but there has been a modern upsurge of interest in inland waterways for pleasure use. Several boat firms in the town now serve the needs of owners and hirers of pleasure craft.

Near to the shopping centre is a modern library which displays a collection of Roman relics of the salt industry. A variety of leisure opportunities are afforded by rivers and canals, a pleasing small park, playing fields, tennis courts, bowling and putting greens. Attached to the town's Comprehensive School is a modern sports hall which is jointly used by pupils and the general public. More ...

In this section we give details of self-catering boats for hire on canals, rivers, lakes; yacht charter, flotilla sailing, cruising with or without crew, sail training, etc. in Middlewich or surrounding areas.
