Overwater Marina

OverWater Marina is on the Shropshire Union Canal. It is surrounded by Cheshire farmland, overlooking the River Weaver valley and is a 15 minute walk from the vibrant canal village Audlem.

Update 6th February 2013: “Regarding the info for Overwater Marina, the quoted time to walk from the Marina into the village of Audlem is definitely wrong.We currently moor at Overwater and I regularly do the walk. It takes me 30 minutes to get to the Shroppie Fly!” NB Song of the Waterways

Audlem is a vibrant and well kept canalside village with a range of shops, tea and coffee rooms and pubs including the famous Shroppie Fly. The Audlem Mill Canal Shop runs a range of canal craft activities. A series of local walks are available from the Audlem website.

Paul Smith

After six and a half years living on a narrowboat on England's inland waterways, Paul and his wife Cynthia wandered Europe by motorhome during the winter, and on the Dutch and French waterways in the warmer months on their 35' Dutch motor cruiser. However, the pull of England's muddy ditches proved too much for them. Now they're back where they belong, constantly stuck in mud in a beautiful traditional narrowboat.
