Mary Archard Trips

Launch of the Mary Archard at Pewsham : 14th October 2017

The Mary Archard is a "Wheely Boat" with a bow door that raises and lowers.  This configuration makes it very easy for wheelchair and less able users to board making the canal more accessible for all to enjoy.

From April to October, the boat will be making trips along the restored canal at Pewsham. These trips will be available to the public. They will take place on the SECOND Saturday of each month.
