Visit Shardlow and its Heritage Centre for a fascinating insight into this 18th century canal transhipment port. Shardlow has a unique place in the history of the country. The 18th century canal port, with all its associated wharves and warehouses can still clearly be seen. Originally a river port, Shardlow developed greatly with the opening of the Trent and Mersey Canal in 1770.
