Henhull L1

Henhull is a small parish situated along a rural part of the Shropshire Union Canal just two miles from Nantwich in Cheshire.

The Shropshire Union Canal runs from Autherley Junction, near Wolverhampton, on the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal, to the Manchester Ship Canal at Ellesmere Port.

Deep wooded cuttings and high embankments, which characterise this canal, can be enjoyed for miles along the route.

Henhull Moorings are approximately 430m long and provide space for up to 18 vessels moored against the off-side bank.
