get prepared for your canal boat holiday

 Guide to Boating

Will will provide a full handover at the start of your holiday including how to start, steer and moor the boat and navigate locks and bridges etc. We will take you through your first lock too!  

 

You will get a document with all the information you will need including the Canal and River Trust's Boaters Handbook, which you can download here too!

 Part of the handover is for you to watch these 4 videos produced by the River Canal Trust for new boaters.  

Also, check out Channel 4's Great Canal Journeys, where Tim and Pru cruise the Leeds Liverpool Canal, past our mooring at Greenberfield.
