Chapel Bridge No 7 is near or in the village of Rufford and is on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal (Rufford Branch) between Lathom Junction (Junction with Leeds and Liverpool - Rufford Branch) (3 miles and 7 locks to the southwest) and Rufford Old Hall (Ancient Half Timbered Manor House. National Trust Property) (2¼ furlongs to the northwest).
 
 
The nearest place in the direction of Lathom Junction is Fettlers Wharf Marina (Under same ownership as Scarisbrick Marina on the Main Line of the Leeds & Liverpool); ½ furlongs away.

Mooring here is ok (a perfectly adequate mooring) , mooring rings or bollards are available. Close to the road so can be a bit noisy at times. Easy walk into the village.

There is a bridge here which takes a road over the canal.

Wikipedia has a page about Chapel Bridge

The Kapellbrücke (literally, Chapel Bridge) is a covered wooden footbridge spanning the River Reuss diagonally in the city of Lucerne in central Switzerland. Named after the nearby St. Peter's Chapel, the bridge is unique in containing a number of interior paintings dating back to the 17th century, although many of them were destroyed along with a larger part of the centuries-old bridge in a 1993 fire. Subsequently restored, the Kapellbrücke is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe, as well as the world's oldest surviving truss bridge. It serves as the city's symbol and as one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions.
