Whixall is available with a weekly hire from Crest

Another great place to see wildlife and nature is Whixall Moss. Most mosses in the UK have been drained for agricultural use. Whixall Moss is a rare survivor, along with Fenns, Bettisfield, Wem and Cadney Moss they form Britains third largest lowland raised bog. the site is 2340 acres. 

In 2001 circular waymarked trails were developed through some areas of Fenns and Whixall Mosses, these trails are available from the canalside towpath. 

Boaters will see wildlife such as kingfishers, swans, watervoles, grass and adder snakes, and also rare birds of prey.
