Shropshire Union Canal near Nantwich, Cheshire
From here to Ellesmere Port in 1779 was originally the Chester Canal, later merged with the Birmingham and Liverpool Junction Canal to form the Shropshire Union Canal. North of here the locks are fourteen feet in width, and boats with a beam of up to nine feet can navigate the waterway. Southwards towards Wolverhampton the beam limit is the standard narrow seven feet. Behind the camera and to the right is Nantwich Basin, the terminus of the Chester Canal, now used as a marina.
