Canal Moorings in Cheshire

Trent-&-Mersey-Canal-from-sky

Oakwood Marina is a family business venture.

After a number of delay's, the first phase of our marina development to provide 90 canal boat moorings is scheduled to open in 2018.

We would like to thank all those individuals, companies & bodies who have assisted and supported us in clearing obstacles, as well as moving our development forward in a sustainable way.

Funding of the project is supported by a grant from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) administered via the Rural Payments Agency.  

Our site is set in a beautiful tranquil rural location, yet close to  amenities and main transport routes. 

We look forward to welcoming you all to our marina soon.

Treasured Experiences 

Our location is well positioned, on the Trent & Mersey Canal, to maximise the choice of canal cruising routes in the North West.  Convenient base for cruising the circular routes of the Cheshire Ring and Four Counties Ring or for cruising there and back to Llangollen or Chester or maybe dropping onto the River Weaver, via the famous Anderton Boat lift, situated just across town (Northwich).  

Once we have developed our site, please join us and take yourself on an adventure from our private marina. Embrace the local tranquillity, seek out the local features nearby or explore the network of canals and rivers at your leisure.


Around & About

The nearby town of Northwich was famous historically for it's Salt Industry (with current salt museum), being the birthplace of ICI with its legacy of public buildings, it's unique timber framed buildings, railway viaducts, historic swing bridges and Anderton Boat Lift.   The town of Northwich is currently being rejuvenated, with a large retail development and cinema, following the stabilisation of historically abandoned and unstable salt mines which has allowed the original shopping area to be extended.

The village of Rudheath is approx. 1.5 miles along the towpath to the North.  Facilities include the Broken Cross PH, Spar, Co-op, chip shop, newsagent and off-license.  The village has a Community Centre, pre school nursery, primary school and secondary school.  The villages of Davenham and Lach Dennis are approx. 2 miles to the West and East.

Mooring Availability

Construction works will be substantially complete in January 2018.

Current Status - the jetty decks are now on site and being installed and the services building is up to the rafters.

Details of formal viewing days will be advised in due course but we do now show people around on request.

Our marina is independent and is not connected in anyway to CRT's group of marinas, or any other marina group.  Access to and from the canal is not obstructed by a narrow entrance or bridge.  The marina is on privately owned land, having no public rights of way passing through the site.
