The Four Counties Ring is a 109 mile, 94 lock circular canal route which slices through the counties of West Midlands, Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire. It comprises three separate canals, each with their own unique character and charm. The Shropshire Union Canal visits a scattering of tiny canal-side towns and villages en route from Wolverhampton to Barbridge junction near the Cheshire town of Nantwich. The Middlewich branch then joins to the Trent and Mersey canal, taking us directly into the heart of the Potteries. This direct link to the Industrial Revolution is a fitting reminder of the canal's origin as a vital trade route for the area. The twists and turns of the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal completes the link in this aquatic 'roundabout', marking a return to the sweeping meadows of the 'Shroppie'.
