Wrenbury Hire Base
Though there are very few locks to the West of Wrenbury Mill, the leisurely cruising is not to be rushed, particularly if taking the detour along the Montgomery Canal (need to book entrance in advance). Do not ignore the opportunities to cruise through the lovely little market towns to the East either.
