Acton Bridge No 93

Wilbraham Road, Acton CW5 8JZ, United Kingdom
Acton Bridge No 93 is a minor waterways place on the Shropshire Union Canal (Chester Canal - Nantwich to Bunbury) between Nantwich Basin Entrance (Junction of the Birmingham and Liverpool Junction Canal - Main Line and the Chester Canal) (3 furlongs to the southeast) and Hurleston Junction (Junction of Llangollen Canal and Shropshire Union Main Line) (1 mile and 4¼ furlongs to the northwest).
The nearest place in the direction of Nantwich Basin Entrance is Nantwich & Border Counties Yacht Club (nbcyc); 1¾ furlongs away.
The nearest place in the direction of Hurleston Junction is Henhull Bridge No 95; 4¾ furlongs away.

Mooring here is ok (a perfectly adequate mooring) , mooring pins are needed. The bank is quite solid with a good edge but as with a lot of concrete edges it juts out a bit underwater so you tend to stop a little out from the bank and grind on the edge.

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