Boat Services

Other facilities are provided on a fortnightly basis by ex-working boat, Halsall, which brings coal, firewood, gas and diesel direct to your boat and provides a pump-out service.

Car parking

There is initial car parking and footpath access between the car park and the mooring jetties.

The marina

Park Farm Marina is a canal boat marina located roughly half way between the Anderton Boat Lift and Middlewich on the Trent and Mersey Canal two miles south east of the centre of Northwich. The marina is on the lock-free pound between the Dutton stop lock near Preston Brook and Middlewich Big Lock, with access to the Bridgewater Canal to the north and the narrow canal network to the south. The marina has around 150 berths for both narrow and wide beam canal boats in a peaceful, rural location with good road access from all directions.

The marina was opened in March 2016 and is presently taking bookings for canal boats on either an Annual or a Shorter Term basis.
