Workparty

(Scroll down for talks and events)

Workparty volunteers work Monday to Friday on the restoration of locks in the Woolsthorpe Flight (different team each day).


They also meet on Monday, Friday & Saturday, plus other weekdays as required to undertake work, largely on the navigable section between Woolsthorpe and the A1.

Notes:

Most boat trips depart from near the Dirty Duck Pub, Woolsthorpe by Belvoir. NG32 1NY.

Be sure to reserve you place on arrival at the red gazebo near the pub gates. No pre-booking, except on arrival.

When Woolsthorpe Depot is shown to be open, there will be refreshments, to include homemade cake.

Look out for those trips which depart from Harlaxton Wharf. NG32 1AE – don’t miss the boat!

Regrettably, we’ve taken the decision to cancel all events, boat trips, visits & talks, until mid July.  We will review the situation again then.
