Our land adjoins the towpath side of the Trent & Mersey Canal between bridge nos. 209 -210 (Black Prince Narrow Boats, Bartington Wharf). You can reach us either by walking from the boatyard down the hill from the car park and we are on the right. Journey time: less than 2 mins.
Alternatively you can walk from bridge number 209, down the hill and follow the signs to the tea room. This route takes slightly longer as you’ll probably need to stop for a chat with Eric and Ernie the Alpacas.
If you arriving by boat we suggest that you moor just before bridge 211 as it is designated private mooring between bridges 209-210. From bridge 211, walk up to the top of the bridge and walk down the hill and through the little wood. This will bring you out next to the Leigh Arms pub. Turn right and walk towards the A49. Carefully cross the A49 and walk down the lane directly opposite. Journey time approx.10mins.
On the River Weaver, moor by Acton Bridge Swing Bridge and walk up to the road (A49). Turn left walking a short way until you reach a lane. Turn left down the lane and the entrance to the car park is on the left. (Journey time: approximately 10mins)
