Heritage Class

Pontcysyllte - 6 to 8 Berth
69 ft Cruiser Stern

6 Berth with an option for additional 2 berths in seating area. (Please note this may compromise quality.)

This is one of the most famous names on the UK canal system. The World Heritage Status granted to this 126 feet high and 1007 feet long aqueduct ( just one hours cruising from our Chirk base), has made the area even more popular. To cross the towering 200 year old structure is an unmissable and unique experience akin to floating on air. It was designed by Thomas Telford and, according to recent historians, had more than a passing input from another great canal engineer, William Jessop. Pontcysyllte is available to hire from May 1st 2020

Three generations of this World renowned pottery family have made their famous products for nearly 250 years at the factory that still exists in Stoke and was founded in 1762 by Josiah Spode. Another famous pottery, Portmeirion bought Spode from the administrators in 2009 so ensuring the continuance of this historic name. The factory is well worth a visit to pick up a souvenir of your time cruising the Trent & Mersey Canal and is a short walk from the bottom of the Stoke locks.
