Welcome to Middlewich Narrowboats. We are a small, family run canal boat hire and repair company and have helped thousands of people enjoy British waterways since the 1960s.

The Middlewich Narrowboats boatyard is an important historical site for the town. It is said that the world famous engineer, James Brindley, visited during the planning of the Trent and Mersey canal at the beginning of the industrial revolution.
