To say thank you to all our loyal moorers, we would like to offer you a free pre-season boat check...

We know the last few months have been tough as everyone has been separated from what they love the most; for some that will be friends and family and others it may be their narrowboat?

Whatever it maybe we would like to offer all of our moorers a free pre-season health check for their boat, this is to assist you in getting back to boating as soon as possible.

Aqueducts free pre-season boat check will include the following:


A visual inspected and emptying via bilge pump*
*(Subject to no contamination being present).

Stern Gland

Assessed for drips and wear of the gland packing.


We will run up your engine to get things lubricated internally and clear the damp.
The engine oil level will be checked along with both coolant level & mixture.


Each battery is disconnected and tested individually; our battery testing equipment uses the specification of your battery to review and score its health on a scale of 1 to 100.

At the end of the health check each boat will receive a report card, listing results for the checks undertaken; if we feel anything is required this will be listed for review or we will call you on the day should action be more urgent.

Does your boat need a little more than our free pre-season boat check?

As an engineer will already be attending to your boat, we can also offer the following additional services, some of which will be discounted;

Diesel bug testing

Bacterial culturing is used to test if diesel bug is in your fuel system; we can now grow diesel bug in a test tube with a sample your fuel should it be contaminated!

Standard engine service

£120.00 Approx* (1hr labour + parts) Normally £180.00 Approx
Reduced in price by one hour’s labour; our standard engine service includes fuel filter, engine oil and filter replacement along with more technical checks.
*Gearbox oil, non-standard instillations and traditional engine services can also be undertaken; for more info ask a member of the team.

Traditional stern gland packing

Traditional stern gland packing can be replaced whilst we are undertaking the free checks; if you think this need’s completing or if we advise you it looks due; you can simply add this to the visit.

Boat cleaning

We are also glad to confirm that our interior cleaners are back to work and available Monday – Saturday from next week; should you wish to have the interior of your boat cleaned before you visit for the first time after lockdown this can now be booked. Just so that you know… Our interior cleaners have changed their practices to ensure they can work in a Covid-Secure manner changing the cleaning products they use to those with virus fighting ingredients.

Long Term Moorings Short Term Moorings


Autumn Report from the Captain’s Table

We have been busy over the summer making improvements and upgrades to Aqueduct Marina.

We have improved the Wi-Fi coverage which is now free to all moorers. The temporary car park at the end of A & B jetties has been re-stoned, the brick paving from the slipway to the service jetty has been re-levelled and the steps up to the Galley café have been repaired. The café and facilities building has new doors and Woody has started the annual jetty pressure washing. Finally, as the breach at Middlewich has reduced cruising options, we have been supplying all Aqueduct Moorers with free electricity this year.

We are committed to keeping Aqueduct Marina moorings in premiere condition and will continue to refurbish and upgrade the facilities. If you see something that you feel needs a lick of paint or tidying up, please see Georgia at the reception desk, ring or email

At this time of year, many boat owners decide to sell their narrowboat, sometimes after many years of boating. Consequently our brokerage has been busy, the boat market remains strong and good quality boats are in demand. We would like to thank all those who have supported Aqueduct Marina in the past and those who continue to use Aqueduct Marina for moorings, maintenance, chandlery and brokerage.

We do have a limited number of moorings available or becoming available so if you are thinking of moving mooring location to Aqueduct Marina or know someone who would like to join us please get in touch with Nick Beech, call in to visit or go to our moorings webpage The more notice we have the more likely we are to be able to accommodate mooring applications.
With a full range of services on site we are a One Stop Destination for all boating requirements in an excellent cruising location. There is very little that we cannot arrange, from boat valets and engine services to 2 pack blacking and fabrication.

Have an excellent festive season and hopefully we will see you at one of our upcoming events.

Yours Sincerely,


We have been busy over the summer making improvements and upgrades to Aqueduct Marina.
