A gentle 2 night, 10 hour return cruise incorporating 18 locks. The locks are close together, well maintained and provide plenty of energetic navigating. Listed in the Domesday Book as Aldemlime, and granted a market charter by Edward I in 1929. Audlem was Cheshire’s ‘village of the year’ in 2005. Just half a mile from the centre is Moss Hall, a magnificent Elizabethan timber framed hall dating from 1616. An old waterside mill is now home to Audlem Mill Canal Shop considered to be one of the best canal shops on the system. The canal side ‘Shoppie Fly’ is just one of the several local pubs popular with boaters serving good food.
