Sign of the Cheshire Ring

The sign for the Cheshire Ring pub features canal boats on the nearby Peak Forest Canal.

The Cheshire Ring is a 97 mile long circular canal route with 92 locks. It takes in the whole of the Macclesfield Canal and parts of the Trent and Mersey, Bridgewater, Rochdale, Ashton and Peak Forest Canals. More information can be found on the Pennine Waterways website.

The Cheshire Ring pub can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

A contribution to signs, signs.


  1. That's a lot of locks in that canal. You would need a few pub stops!

  2. A sign that the locals would understand, but tourists, not so much, maybe?

  3. I'd try this place. Intriguing sign.

  4. Never heard of the ring but do now so if I am near the place I will look out for it

  5. I thought the picture was of bars of gold - Cheshire "ring"! Glad you explained it! Sounds like an interesting trip.

  6. Very nice!! they look a little like the Amsterdam canal boats! :-)
