The Droitwich Canals

Canal boat holidays on the Droitwich Canals

The Droitwich Canals were originally built to ship salt from the Droitwich mines to the River Severn.

They are made up of two canals – the Droitwich Barge Canal and the Droitwich Junction Canal.  Together they stretch 7.4 miles and link the Worcester & Birmingham Canal at Hanbury and the River Severn at Hawford. After failing into disrepair following the decline of trade along the canals in the early 1900’s, thanks to decades of restoration work by the Droitwich Canals Trust, they reopened in 2011.

The reopening of the Droitwich Canals restored the Droitwich Ring which can be done on a three or four night break.  The ring travels 21 miles, passes through 33 locks and can be completed in around 16 hours.
