Update 9th January 

Just 1 berth left (single or double) - Book Now!!


The cruise will start and finish at Stone in Staffordshire. Four boats have been hired from Canal Cruising. Please see the brochure attached or their website for more details or click on these links for details of each boat including a video tour: Martha, Olivia, Elinor & Lillian.

There is a mixture of single and double berths on each boat and these will be allocated so as best to fit everybody in and according to the wishes of participants.

Stone is on the Trent & Mersey Canal and there are several route options for the cruise including the Four Counties Ring or Leek and Froghall on the Caldon Canal.

The cost of hiring the boats is likely to be about £200 per person. This will include fuel and there are no charges for mooring alongside the canals.


How to get there.

Canal Cruising's boatyard is about 1,000 yards from Stone Railway Station. Direct trains run from Euston and take 2 hours and 5 minutes. The fare is currently £9 each way.

By road Stone is easily accessible from the M6 motorway. Junction 14 is 6 miles to the south.

Book now to secure your place!

Please book by paying a £50 deposit per person here.

If you are booking for more than one person please send me a separate email with their names and indicate whether single or double berths are required.

The total cost of boat hire is estimated to be about £200 per person. Final payments will be requested in June.
