Heritage Narrow Boats is situated on the beautiful Macclesfield Canal overlooking our holiday cottage - Heritage Wharf in the idyllic Cheshire countryside, in Scholar Green near Kidsgrove, Cheshire.

Heritage Narrow Boats has been operating at Heritage Marina since 1974 operating a fleet of holiday narrowboats and moorings at their base situated on the magnificent Macclesfield canal which straddles the Cheshire plain and the western foothills of the Peak district near the junction of the Trent and Mersey Canal.

Purchased by Earle Wightman in 1998, Sherborne Wharf and Heritage Narrowboats have combined their hire fleets and have striven to maintain the excellent standards and reputation set by the previous owners of Heritage.

The Macclesfield Canal and the southern portion of the Peak Forest canal wind through a countryside of great beauty which has attracted pleasure craft tourists for many years. Designed by the legendary Thomas Telford and opened in 1831 it has two long level pounds divided by a flight of 12 locks at Bosley in a delightful rural setting.

A feature of the Macclesfield canal is the superbly crafted stonework of its graceful bridges and aqueducts. Particularly distinctive are the roving bridges which transfer the towpath from one side of the canal to the other in such a way that in the old days the horses pulling the heavy barges could cross without having to be unhitched from the towing line.

The canal is rich in a number of magnificent houses and places of historic interest that lie close to its banks. One such example is Little Moreton Hall, one of the most perfect examples of a timber-framed moated manor house in the country which can be seen just a mile from our Marina. Another is the 13th century church nearby Astbury which is a treasure house of history and craftsmanship. In the churchyard there is a Yew tree reputed to be over 1000 years old.
