When on club site please adhere to the government rules of the day. Now we are in Tier 4, please always wash/treat hands after using locks, gates, padlocks & crossing phones.

Whatever your age you are welcome to become a member, whether you have a boat, or are at present, without one.

Moorings become available at times (check with mooring master), but sorry we do not have moorings for narrowboats.

4mph on the canal seems very slow, but you soon find it’s just right for relaxing.. Events held in the club house as well as cruises mean you make new friends as well as being able to share expertise on boat problems etc.. 

As long as you do not want all home comforts, boating need only be a reasonable hobby expense..

Memberships available:  single, joint or family. Visit clubhouse or contact Secretary.  (contacts heading)

Like many boat clubs,Social membership only is not available.

New applicants (application form on this website) will normally be invited to meet the officers and committee at the beginning of a monthly committee meeting. A one off joining fee plus a year’s membership fee is applicable (single, joint or family). (fees are membership not each person)

To try and keep membership and mooring fees reasonable, we encourage members to help at the two work weekends we have each year, as well as joining in some club events.
We are  also able to offer crane facilities at certain times, normally at the beginning and end of the cruising season. (a moderate fee is payable). This also includes jet washing the hull at crane out.
