Afloat on Cheshire's Waterways

Little Moreton Hall

A Perfect Place to Visit

Congleton Museum opened in 2002 and has touch screen computers, pull out figures with voice-overs telling the town’s history. Exhibits include a prehistoric log boat and coin hoards from the Civil War.

Cheshire is a great county to explore on foot with a network of over 3000km of footpaths and other public rights of way enabling you to discover quiet corners of the countryside.  For over 100 years trains travelled along the Biddulph Valley Way carrying coal from the Potteries to Congleton.  Today walkers, cyclists and horse riders enjoy this tranquil route away from roads.  The Gritstone Trail offers some of the finest walking in Cheshire.  This is quite a challenging route stretching from Kidsgrove to Disley, with some fine ridge walks and stunning views over the Cheshire plain.

The Macclesfield Canal passes close to Congleton and is thought by many to be the most beautiful of England's inland waterways. It links the Peak Forest canal at Marple and the Trent & Mersey near Kidsgrove. There is a spectacular series of 12 locks at Bosley before crossing the Dane via Telford’s superb iron aquaduct.

The mature tree lined avenues and location next to the River Dane make Congleton Park the ideal location to unwind.  Town Wood on the northern edge of the park is a Grade A Site of Biological Interest and contains many nationally important plants.

Nearby Rode Hall is a fine early 18th century country house set in a Repton landscape and has been the home of the Wilbraham family since 1669.
