Traditional narrowboat moored on the Trent and Mersey Canal at Shardlow. Close to Castle Donington, Derby, Nottingham and Leicester and it is easily accessed via public transport. No boating experience is needed as full training and boat handling instructions will be given at the handover. We will demonstrate how to steer and moor the boat and we will take you through the first lock and show you how to operate it. A comprehensive training video and a Boater's Handbook is also provided to you. Life jackets are provided for all of our customers. Shardlow is an 18th Century Inland Port and has 7 pubs, most of which do food and are child and pet friendly and a very good Indian Restaurant. There is also a heritage centre for more information on the historic use of Shardlow as a Port. Shardlow...Traditional narrowboat moored on the Trent and Mersey Canal at Shardlow.
