Due to cancellations there are now two places available on each of the trips (17th-24th September and 24th September - 1st October). The itinerary will be the same as for the trip in June, and wherever possible we will host the sessions in the same venues. If you are interested in coming along with us, get in touch as quickly as possible. Here are the details of the trips, which again will comprise of two separate, but contiguous, week long trips.

Week 1 - We will leave the boatyard at Napton, Warwickshire on the lunchtime of Saturday 17th September. We will travel east along the Grand Union, and then north up to the Ashby Canal as far as its navigable terminus at Snarestone. Along the way we will pass Braunston, Rugby, Coventry and Hinckley before returning to Napton. We will return to the boatyard at Napton on Saturday 24th September.

Week 2 - We will leave the boatyard in Napton, Warwickshire during the afternoon of Saturday 24th September. We will travel along the South Oxford Canal in the direction of Oxford. Along the way we will pass many sites of interest and great beauty along the route including Banbury, and we should have limited time to explore the delights of Oxford. We will return to Napton on Saturday 1st October.

Crewing the boat, working locks etc will be optional and always with guidance and, if necessary, instruction from an experienced narrowboat skipper. Food for meals, inc full breakfast, lunch and the majority of evening meals is provided for.
