The majority of our trips start and end adjacent to The Cee-Ders Club Castlecroft
Lane Wolverhampton WV3 8JU where there is adequate parking space for cars and minibuses.
From here the boat can go south as far as Giggetty in Wombourne, with the opportunity
to call into the Round Oak Pub for a meal. Alternatively the boat can stop at the
Bratch Picnic Site, just below the historic 3 Bratch Locks, where passengers can
disembark for a picnic.
Going north, trips can go as far as The Fox & Anchor Pub at
Coven, an opportunity for a pub lunch, or only go as far as Aldersley Junction, where
the Birmingham Canal Navigations joins the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal,
or a little further to Autherley Junction. Here the Shropshire Union Canal branches
towards Nantwich and Chester. Longer day trips can go up the Shropshire Union Canal
to Brewood but this is maybe too far for frail elderly passengers.
A popular five
hour trip is to go south to Dimmingsdale, turn around and on the way north stop at
Compton or Newbridge for a fish and chip meal, before turning again at Aldersley
Junction or Autherley Junction.
