Lymm Cruising Club is perfectly situated on the Bridgewater Canal just a few minutes walk from the village of Lymm in Cheshire. This members only boat club is situated in its own grounds on the side of the Bridgewater Canal at Lymm. Our members enjoy organised cruises during the season plus a programme of full and varied social events throughout the year. Members have exclusive use of the Club facilities in return for supporting our Commodore's cruising programme. The Club's magazine... "The Slipway", is published monthly, informs members of up and coming events, latest news and general information as well as a few photographs of interest. Members have a choice of either a paper copy that is posted to their home address or an electronic copy that is emailed to them in PDF format. The latter is very useful when out long term cruising and wishing to keep in touch with what is going on back home. If you would like to join us check out our Membership Page.
There are many advantages to joining an established and active cruising club as you will be amongst like minded people, many having vast and varied experiences of cruising the waterways throughout the country and are more than willing to pass on their experiences, give advice when required and talk about canals and inland waterways in general over a drink in our well stocked bar.
Inside the Clubhouse during a social event
The Club currently has moorings available and has three mooring locations. Everyone starts out at Oughtrington, which is located about a mile from Lymm... this secluded linear mooring has minimal facilities but, being quiet and secluded, offers the privacy that many members love.
When space becomes available, members are invited to move to either the Lymm Clubhouse Moorings; which offer mains electricity hook-up, water points, Elsan toilet disposal and toilet holding tank pump-out. Most of the moorings at Lymm are linear but there are some jetty moorings at the site of the old Gas Works Arm...

...or the Agden Moorings about a mile further along the canal from Oughtrington. At Agden there is electricity hook-up and a water point but no Elsan or pump-out facilities.
At the Clubhouse in addition to water and Elsan disposal, there are pump-out facilities for use by only Club members only. The pump-out is easy to use although a tutorial is given to new members as to how to use it.

After a qualifying period, boat owners are given the opportunity to take advantage of our slipway where boats are pulled out of the water for hull cleaning, painting and any maintenance work that might be required. The Club also provides a powerful jet-washer for cleaning the hull.

When cruising along the canal, keep a look out for the Club burgee on moored boats. You’re sure to find the barbecue under way and a warm welcome awaiting you.
