Hargreaves Boat Trip

Hargreaves Boat Trip

The Hargreaves Narrowboat Trust is a registered charity and is run entirely by volunteers.The crew and trustees are all unpaid and give up their time to support this important community service. The trust enjoys supporting local groups, the community and charities by offering day trips on the narrowboat.

Records show that the narrowboat was first built in 1977 by Cammell Laird ship repairers and ship builders. The Prince’s Trust supported the build of the 20 ton, maximum length narrowboat. It is rumoured that some surplus steel from HMS Coventry was donated.

Originally called the Bernard Sunley, it was renamed the Hargreaves after Tom Hargreaves used his mayor’s charitable fund to buy her in 1989. Many hundreds of people have enjoyed a journey along the Ashby and Coventry waterways thanks to the dedication and support of the Hargreaves volunteers and trustees.

Join us on Thursday 14th September for a trip on this majestic Narrowboat!
