ABOUT

Victoria Pit Moorings is situated on the Macclesfield Canal between bridge 15 and 14. We have the enviable position of overlooking the Cheshire plain as well as being on the edge of the Peak District.

There is 25 miles of lock free cruising from Buxworth basin on the upper peak Forrest canal to Bosley locks on the Macclesfield canal which still allows winter cruising regardless of stoppages.

If you are using the boat as a base, there is much to explore locally on foot including the beautiful Middlewood way (an old railway line now used as a footpath, bridleway and cycle route linking Marple to Macclesfield), Lyme Park including Lyme Hall a beautiful National Trust site, Anson Engine museum and many local walks. By car, there are many other sites to visit in the countrysides of the Peak District and Cheshire.
