Audlem Gathering of Historic Boats 2017

Featured Posts

This two day event is on 29/30 July, and takes place in the bottom three pounds of the Audlem flight of 15 locks on the Shropshire Union Canal. Entry is free to spectators, and there is also no charge for historic boats to take part. However, numbers are limited, so it's worth contacting us as soon as you can to secure a place. Entry is open to any ex-working narrow boat built up to 1960. Further details and booking form are attached. Please email [email protected]

I'm down for bringing Scorpio and Leo again this year, hopefully won't get an enforcement notice this year.

Well, I did attach it, but it hasn't appeared! I'll email you the form, Alan, and anyone else can email [email protected], and we'll email it.

Peter,

 

It is not a possibility for us, I'm afraid.

Does the show have wheelchair access?

Yes it does, in that the whole Gathering is along the towpath, with gentle slopes and no steps.

 

And car parking is in a flattish field right by the canal - there's no parking actually at the event, but the field parking is only 100 yards from the nearest part of the event.

 

Bring your BW toilet key, as there's a sanitary station at Audlem Wharf, next to the Shroppie Fly pub (with level access).

Sorry we won't see you, but hopefully at some time in the future.

One problem we face is that Audlem is generally the same weekend as Linslade. Linslade generally only get a small turn-out of working boats, but where we can, we try to take at least one of ours, because the public always seems to appreciate there being some.

 

Good luck with yours, but although we have fitted it in once, the timing doesn't usually work for us, unfortunately.
