2023 Boat Charter Bookings

Boat Charter Bookings

On Friday 1st September the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust are running Charter trips in their wheelchair friendly boat, The Mary Archard. The trip on the beautiful River Avon at Melksham takes about 30 minutes. The Mary Archard can take up to 8 passengers. However, if the passenger is in a wheelchair this will count as 2 passengers. Charters are run from the slipway in King George V Park, Lowbourne Road, Melksham SN12 7ED. Due to weight restrictions, the boat can only take two wheelchair passengers. Sorry, we cannot take motorised wheelchairs or buggies.

Departure times are on the booking forms. Charter price £30
