Helmsman course on the Shropshire Union Canal

Written by Amber Mottram on June 17, 2013

Me and Ellie have just completed a two day course on the Shropshire Union Canal with Terry the Boatman! We are now fullly qualified helmswomen!! We can drive any barge and carry passengers. We really enjoyed the two days spent on the canal, the gentle pace, the locks, the beautifully decorated boats and the characters we encountered all reinforced our sense that this would be an excellent space to inspire artists.

Our next step is to go to Stourport, visit James’ uncle Merv and start test driving some boats!
