The marina is based at Cholmondeston, Nantwich in Cheshire. It’s at the heart of north-west England’s canal network, with easy access to Market Drayton, Llangollen, Chester, Manchester, Birmingham and the Trent and Mersey. There are also excellent road links, as the marina is convenient for the M6 motorway.
