More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider


The Grand Union Canal, on which we travel, was built over two hundred years ago to service the Industrial Revolution. Although it is used today mainly for leisure activities, Stoke Bruerne is one of the best places on the canals to capture the atmosphere of the past. Loaded working boats are frequently seen at Stoke Bruerne, and the Canal Museum is unsurpassed as a source of information on the lives of the working boatmen.

Our trips will take you just inside the entrance of Blisworth Tunnel, which is nearly two miles long. This will enable you to appreciate the methods of construction and the enormity of the task facing the navvies who built it in the 18th century.

Booking Information

'Charlie' our caanal boat seats up to 26 passengers at a time.

If your party is larger, we are happy to arrange a 'shuttle' service, splitting your group to explore the canal museum, waterside walks etc.

You can download a copy of our Risk Assessment document.

The 25 minute trip costs £2.50 per head for both pupils and staff.

We do not need to know final numbers in advance.
