Description

Regular Powered Boat Trip

The full experience is a 2 Hour Cruise departing from Cromford Wharf and returning to Cromford Wharf. During a Regular Powered Boat Trip passengers may opt to take the boat one way and explore the area fully or walk on.  Included is a bespoke commentary detailing the history of the Cromford Canal and Birdswood’s journey up to the charity purchasing her. Every passenger will have the opportunity to have a tour of the back cabin and a brief description of how the families lived on the boat. Whilst the boat is winding (turning around) people are invited to take a short stroll of 300 mtrs to take in the views of Leawood Pumphouse and the Aqueduct over the River Derwent before embarking for the trip back to Cromford Wharf. This is optional – weather permitting.

Hot and cold drinks are for sale during the trip, as well as sweet and savoury snacks for all ages.
