Shropshire Lady (Day Boat)
Attraction in Ellesmere, Shropshire
Shropshire Lady, launched in June 2017, is a narrow boat, built to a new level of design to make holidays accessible for day trips on the Llangollen Canal near Ellesmere in Shropshire.
Shropshire Lady was commissioned by the Lyneal Trust to provide a new and unique set of standards, not seen before on any other narrow boat in the UK. She has the very latest equipment to allow up to 12 passengers to enjoy a day trip on the beautiful Llangollen Canal in north Shropshire. She is 60-foot long with comfortable saloon with huge windows and skylights to provide superb views of canal life and surrounding countryside. Fitted with ramp and hydraulic lift for wheelchair users and infirm guests, to allow them to move freely around the boat. On warm, sunny days the open area at the front of the boat provides a haven of peace and tranquillity. A disabled toilet, full central heating throughout the boat and a galley, with fridge and hob to prepare hot drinks. Bring your own picnic or call at a local canal-side pub for lunch.
The booking fee includes one of Lyneal Trust’s qualified skippers and crew to ensure you enjoy the day, even have a turn at steering the boat, if you wish. The cost to hire this specially designed boat is substantially less than commercial operators as the Trust is managed and operated by volunteers. You choose the direction of travel, where and when to stop and the length of the day to suite your needs.
The boat is available for £85 per day.
