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.

A peaceful park in the Centre of the Cheshire Canal Network.

  • Barbecue and picnic areas
  • Canal side walks
  • CCTV
  • Night-time barrier
  • Showers
  • Underfloor heating
  • Hairdryers
  • Laundry Room

You might reckon that this Cheshire site is right near some water. And you’d go to the top of the class, for Aqueduct Marina Caravan Park is on the Middlewich Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal, in the centre of the Cheshire canal network and surrounded by towpath for waterside walks.

Or you might just fancy sitting by the Marina and watching the canal boats drift lazily by? (All the better to plot which type you’re going to acquire when that lottery win is yours, all yours.)

Other lazy options at this peaceful Nantwich park include the barbecue and picnic areas, or lounging around in the Galley Café, which has a licensed bar, seasonal late night Fridays and Saturdays, and monthly events. The many shops, cafés and pubs of market town Nantwich are a five-mile drive away for lazy urban afternoons.

Aqueduct Marina is set on 100 acres of peaceful Cheshire farmland, with easy access to the M6 and off the B5074 in Church Minshull, near Chester and North Wales. Families, couples, small groups and dogs are all welcome.

As well as the barbecue and picnic areas, the park owners have also added a secure night-time barrier, CCTV, a DIY servicing bay and a recycling compound. Amenities are bang up to date too and include showers and toilets with underfloor heating and hairdryers, as well as a laundry room with a washing machine, dryer and ironing table.
