Midway Boats Barbridge Marina in Cheshire, is on the banks of the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union canal at Barbridge Junction. The Middlewich Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal runs between Middlewich, where it joins the Trent and Mersey Canal, and Barbridge Junction, where it joins the main line of the Shropshire Union Canal.
We have owned and operated Midway Boats since 1992, but there has been a boatyard on this site since the 1960's. The marina is family run and offers personal attention and a warm friendly welcome. Our showroom of quality new and used sport boats and sport cruisers is situated on the other side of a large car parking area adjacent to the offices, all of which can be accessed off Wardle Lane just off the A51.
The marina is approximately 100m from Barbridge Junction and Barbridge Roving Bridge No.1, and is capable of providing moorings, depending on size of boats moored, for up to 70 river cruisers and narrowboats on both sides of the canal. The southern bank being the marina side and the northern bank being the towpath side, with access to the marina across Barbridge Roving Bridge No.1. We usually have a good selection of quality used narrowboats and river cruisers available to purchase, but we can also buy boats in for stock without an outgoing sale.
Our Showroom is the home of new and used sport boats, sport cruisers, fishing boats and inflatables from varying manufacturers. We are main dealers for new Finnmaster Boats and Husky Sport Boats (by Finnmaster), as well as dealers for Yamaha Marine outboards and Honda Marine.
Our chandlery has a wide variety of products to assist with maintaining your life on the waterways.
We have a Day Hire Narrowboat is available to rent for a one off single day's enjoyment and is perfect for celebrations, special events or just for a day's cruising the canal. Although this day hire boat is not allowed through any of the locks, there are still up to 10 miles of canal to explore in three directions, plenty enough for a day's crusing.
We look forward to welcoming you here at Midway Boats.
