Boat Crew: The Trust needs people to crew the boats so we can continue to carry goods on the canals in the traditional manner. This is not just for show, we have a significant number of real customers who rely on us for heating fuel, and in turn we rely on the revenue from the sales to support the upkeep of our working pair of traditional narrowboats. 

No experience is necessary, however we would be particularly pleased to hear from people with experience of handling full length working boats who would like to experience handling a loaded pair and potentially go on to become one of our 'Captains', taking responsibility for the boats and the crews. 

Maintenance: The boats were built in the 30's so there is always something to mend or refurbish. In addition the Trust would like to improve the accommodation on the boats without radically altering them from their near-traditional condition. If you think you could help please get in touch.
