The 2020 cruising base is Alvechurch Marina in Worcestershire.

Visit their web site for more information.

Alvechurch Marina is just south of Birmingham and gives you the choice of several different types of holiday.

The Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN) is a fascinating set of waterways that include a great mixture of urban and rural cruising. You can experience the centre of Birmingham as well as the peace and quiet of the Daw End branch that meanders through the country side east of Walsall.

Cadbury world is right on the canal north of Alvechurch and usually has plenty of moorings available.

For those of you that like your locks you can head down to the Tardebigge flight or down to Stratford-upon-Avon.

These are just a few of the opportunities. Canal Plan AC, as usual, can help you plan your trip. Go to Plan a Journey, enter Alvechurch Marina and, on the next page, select Find out how far you can travel from Alvechurch Marina in a certain time.

The 2019 cruising base is Anderton Marina in Cheshire.

Anderton is a great cruising base for BBC Club members living in the North-West and, despite being a fair drive, is still a great experience for those members living down south or north of the border.

The famous Anderton Lift is just 15 minutes away from the marina and is a must visit location. You can take Savoy Hill on the lift and go down to the the river Weaver or just go and look at the magnificent engineering.
