Judith Mary Restaurant Boat and Cream Tea

The Judith Mary is a family run 72-foot long canal boat which has been running for 37 years. On this day out you’ll enjoy 2 hours of peaceful cruising along the stunning Upper Peak Forest Canal to New Mills. Soon after leaving Whaley Bridge, we navigate our way through the last section of the Upper Peak Forest Canal built in 1800 which is carved out of the sides of a mountain which overlooks the valley of the River Goyt. We’ll be travelling in a north westerly direction through outstanding countryside, with magnificent views of the mountains all around. The canal is higher than the railway in the valley, and passes villages and towns like Bridgemont, then onto picturesque Furness Vale Marina to New Mills taking in the impressive Kinder Scout, at 631 metres this is the highest plateau in the UK and here we turn and make our way back to Whaley Bridge.



Buxton, home of Buxton Water, is a thermal spa town nestled in the centre of the beautiful Peak District and the UK’s oldest National Park. Home to stunning ornamental gardens and world-famous Georgian and Victorian architecture, you will also discover a wealth of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, natural wonders such as Poole’s Cavern, relaxing spas and attractions such as Buxton Opera House.
