Narrowboat Moorings on the Shropshire Union Canal

Canal boat Moorings at Cholmondeston near Nantwich

If you're looking for somewhere to moor your narrow boat in the north-west England, it’s worth taking a look at Venetian Marina in Cheshire.

As well as offering narrow boats for sale, we’ve got moorings for around 150 boats at our site in Cholmondeston, near Nantwich in Cheshire. View our site layout plan for more details.

Each pontoon has its own lighting, water and electric. We aim to try and offer every narrowboat we sell a temporary mooring space. We may also be able to offer you a longer or more permanent mooring dependant on availability. Please enquire at the time of purchase.

We’re proud to have lots of regular customers mooring at Venetian Marina. Many of our narrow boat moorings have been let for five years or more and we value this business. But there are still places available, so if you need somewhere to moor your narrow boat, why not bear us in mind?

  • Location – Our marina is in a beautiful part of the country, within easy reach of Liverpool, Chester, Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester and the north of England via the M6.There are also good road and rail links and a bus service to Chester if you want to get out and about.


  • Canal system – We’ve got amazing access to the network. Turn one way out of our marina to go to Middlewich (and on to the Trent and Mersey Canal); whilst the opposite direction offers a convenient route to the Shropshire Union Canal and Llangollen Canal.
