One of the wonderful aspects of a canalboat holiday with FloatingDreams.co.uk is the fantastic diversity of nature that you will see as you travel along. Asyou pass through towns and villages and through miles of unspoilt, peaceful countryside, plants and animals can be seen in their natural habitats, just going about their daily business. Sometimes they will come to interact with you, from ducks coming for a bit of brekkie...(not toast or bread though..), to herons flying around you as you pass to retake fishing positions once you've passed.
Back in March of last year, (2018), due to a paddle being left up on an nearby lock gate, a substantial breach of the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union canal occured which has rendered passage along this streach to and from Middlewich impossible. For us at FloatingDreams.co.uk Narrowboat Holiday Hire, this prevented trips along the Cheshire and Four Counties Ring routes. The great news is that the repairs are complete and the Middlewich branch is open for business
Most people ask about the Kingfisher, so we've put together a few facts to help you find this fast flying fisher... We are often asked at FloatingDreams.co.uk which forms of wildlife can be seen whilst travelling along the canals.
