Queensbury Walking Groups Narrow Boat Day At Hebden Bridge Saturday 29th April 2017

Queensbury Walking Groups are having a day out on the Rochdale canal on Saturday 29th April 2017. We are hiring a narrow boat and will cruise from Hebden Bridge in the direction of Todmorden, we do not expect to arrive there due to time constraints. As usual cooking facilities are available on the boat, so we will be having delicious bacon, egg and other items in a butty cooked by the galley crew. On the return we may just have time to moor outside the Stubbing Wharfe pub for a swift one before returning the boat.

We all take turns at being the captain, steering the boat, navigating the locks and instructing the others to safely work the locks.
