Marbury Woods Footbridge

Also known as: Big Wood Footbridge
Canal Footbridge, Marbury, Cheshire West and Chester, England, United Kingdom
 
Marbury Woods Footbridge is a minor waterways place on the Trent and Mersey Canal (Main Line - Middlewich to Preston Brook) between Middlewich Junction (Junction of Trent and Mersey Canal Main Line with Wardle Lock Branch leading to Shropshire Union Middlewich Branch) (9 miles and 1¼ furlongs and 4 locks to the southeast) and Anderton Lift Junction (Trent and Mersey) (1 mile and ½ furlongs to the west).
 
 
The nearest place in the direction of Middlewich Junction is The Salt Barge PH; 7½ furlongs away.
 
The nearest place in the direction of Anderton Lift Junction (Trent and Mersey) is Marbury Brook Aqueduct; ½ furlongs away.

Mooring here is good (a nice place to moor) , mooring pins are needed. The bank edge is solid and dredged so you can get right up tight, which you need to because it can be a bit of a motorway along this stretch. The bank is wide enough for you to barbecue on it and you've got easy access into Marbury Wooods over the bridge, and also access into the large nature reserve (Dairy House Meadows) from the bank, so lots of places to go to stretch your legs

There is a bridge here which takes pedestrian traffic over the canal.
