The Whitchurch Branch

The Whitchurch Branch of the Ellesmere Canal ran close to Whitchurch town centre. Today only a short section remains, used mainly for moorings.

The overlay below was based on information gained from the 1902 Ordnance Survey map. Because there are few distinguishing features remaining, I may have got the path a few metres out, but that’s all.

There are plans to reinstate the Whitchurch Branch, but looking at the overlay, I’m less optimistic than I was.
