Burscough & Back

An enjoyable trip for beginners or those looking for a relaxing time with a good mix of locks and lock-free cruising.

Similar in feel to the trip towards Chester, the route to Burscough takes you through the beautiful scenery of Dunham Massey, over the famous Barton Swing Aqueduct, which spans the Manchester Ship Canal and past historic Worsley where the canals began.

This route takes approximately 6 hours per day, perfect for first timers.
