Calveley is a small Georgian village which lies 5 miles north west of Nantwich in Cheshire. The moorings provide boaters with great opportunities to explore the full extent of the Shropshire Union Canal (or 'Shroppie' as its known). The deep cuttings and high embankments which characterise this part of the canal network can be enjoyed for miles along with stunning sweeping views towards the Welsh Marshes.
Some local amenities can be found in the small village of Calverley with a wider choice of restaurants, pubs and shops available in Nantwich.
In total, the Trust manages 29 moorings in Calverley which are spread across three areas, some sited on the towpath and some against the off-side bank.
Facilities are on the towpath side of the canal, are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, do not form part of the mooring agreement, and are for the use of all CRT customers.
Car parking is available on the towpath side. An open car park provided by the local waterway, moorers can use it on a first-come-first-served basis. the car park entrance can be secured by a locked gate which requires a CRT key.
Mooring rings are not installed on this section of the mooring so mooring pins are required. There is the option to chain against the metal piling.
Access to the site is along an unmarked track leading from the car park. Pedestrian access is through a half gate secured by a CRT padlock.
There is a Canal & River Trust operational depot at Calveley. There is also a cheese factory is nearby and the factory fans can be heard on parts of the site.
This is a leisure site and is determined by us to be a mooring site for the storage of boats between leisure use, customers may well spend weekends on this site, and occasionally longer periods, but it is not sold as, or intended to be suitable for long term residential use. This site does not have local authority planning consent for residential use, neither does it have the level of facilities and service expected of such a mooring. As such the offer that we have is only intended to meet the needs of a leisure boater.
