The FCC President is none other than Brian Blessed, and the organisation is manned by volunteers who take visitors along the canal on the historic boat out of a love for the area, the canal and its history. The boat is also available for private hire, as well as specialist educational trips.

Really enjoyed the canal ride, we we’re able to learn a great deal about the history of the barges and the work that they were able to do. Most informative! The volunteers are doing a great job and we thoroughly enjoyed the occasion.
