From Autherley Junction to the Manchester Ship Canal
The Shropshire Union Canal includes two navigable branches, the Middlewich Branch and the River Dee Branch.
There is also a Newport Branch that is derelict but under restoration as part of the Shewsbury and Newport Canal that joins at Norbury Junction.
The Shropshire Union Canal was formed from a group of canal companies, which became the Shropshire Union Railways and Canal Company in 1846.
We have proposed improved links between the Shropshire Union Canal and the River Dee.
