    Hi funsters, if there is anyone interested in visiting Nantwich, Cheshire, may I suggest a possible camp site.It is Nantwich Marina, 1/2 a mile from the centre of the town, on the bus route to Chester,bus stop outside site.
    I have been badgering the owner ,Bill Saner, for over a year to take motor homers on the site. He says the site will be complete, ie, E H U in the summer but he is willing to let funsters stay on a grassed area. The site has full bunkering facilities and a cafe. Nantwich is a lovely town with nice walks along the elevated canal system.:thumb::coolthumb:

    Is that the farmer who made local TV news a while back by diversifying and creating a marina on his land by the canal ?

    Man with a bit of go in him.

    MHs and boats are fine bedfellows.

    Is it actually Nantwich Marina as I store my bus very nearby and want somewhere to stay on a regular basis.

    Have you any more details? Is it the Main Marina? I found details of a site a while ago but cant find them now:Doh::RollEyes:

    Hi Carol, if approach Nantwich from chester on the A 51 you will come to a set of traffic lights on a cross road, go straight across on the A534, through Acton and the Marina will be on your left 1/2 mile from Acton.From any other direction I would advise following the A 500 then on to A 51 for Chester, after you go over a canal bridge you come to a set of traffic lights, Wrexham. Straight ahead, Chester turn right YOU TURN LEFT go through Acton and the marina is on your left. Hope that is clear!
    Being new to motor homing I am always looking for a site like this, near a nice Market town, within a easy walk. I love Nantwich as I work from
    there, I wish I could live there. Im sure Bill at the Marina would make you welcome. Everyone I go passed I think what a place to stay.
    All the best wishes Peejay.

    Thank you for that Peejay will copy it off. The Roudee at Chester can be used as a Aire £1.50p for overnight and normal car park charges in day, but very handy for a couple of nights right in the center of Chester. Also come across a fairly new CCC CL in the center of Southport right by the Pier, so there are a few in the center of towns with no need to catch any other transport to get there. Any more I wonder.

    Hi John,if you Google 'Nantwich Marina' you will get all info. The site hasn't got hook up yet but a cafe,OPEC 7 days, toilet, laundrette, and bus stop outside. An easy walk into Nantwich.
    If you head for Nantwich on the A51 up to the Blue stone traffic lights, straight across on to the A534, through Acton for half a mile, the Marina is on the left. Post code CW5 8 LB.
    Cheers John

    Thanks for the info Carol, use the Chester one, a great site. We were planning to use the Southport site in the near future, glad you mentioned it.
