Whitchurch Boating and Sailing Holidays

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

The oldest town in Shropshire with plenty of beautiful old buildings, Whitchurch is home to the firm J.B. Joyce (est. 1690), the most ancient makers of clock towers in the world. Once an important Roman settlement known as Mediolanum, the town is said to be the place where Cheshire cheese was first created. It was also the birthplace of composer Edward German, of ‘Merrie England’ fame. Whitchurch takes its name from a 14th century church built of white stone and dedicated to St. Alkmund. The church completely collapsed in 1711, and was replaced by the present church with the same dedication. In St Alkmund’s Church are the bones of the lst Earl of Shrewsbury, John Talbot, who died fighting the armies of Joan of Arc at the Battle of Castillon in 1453. The church was founded by the daughter of Alfred the Great in the 10th century. There is a Heritage Centre in the town.

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 Whitchurch or surrounding areas.
