Walking Tour – Industrial Middleport

From Longport to Newport Lane (Middleport), the tour will look at how Middleport's industry has evolved along this stretch of the Trent and Mersey Canal incl. Price and Kensington, Middleport Pottery and Shelton Bar. This walk can be enjoyed on its own or as the first walk in our summer series.

The walk begins at Middleport Pottery (free parking). Please arrive 10 mins before departure (9.50 am). The terrain mainly is via the canal towpath, as well as via public footpaths and alongside local roads, easy-moderate difficulty. Sensible footwear advised.

The walking tour lasts approx 2 hours and returns to Middleport Pottery where you can relax and recharge in our Tea Room.

A very popular tour – it is advised to book early as places are limited.
