Create your own trip for Spalding’s narrowboat

Have your say

All Well and Good is available to hire for a day or two, or even longer, but there are lots more ways to experience life on a narrowboat.

Operations manager Anthony Grunwell has introduced some new trips, but says he is open to suggestions that people put forward.

He has put together a number of packages that give a group of friends the chance to do something different.

They might spend an hour or longer on board and enjoy a glass of Prosecco and nibbles, or even learn to navigate the river by narrowboat.

But Anthony says: “We want people to tell us what they want and if we can do it we will organise it.”

Springfields facilities manager Jackie Sawyers is hoping that at some point Spalding Water Taxi Company will be able to “join the dots” and take the narrowboat to Springfields.

Currently, Spalding Water Taxi does not have permission to take the diesel-driven vessel along the Coronation Channel to the shopping outlet, but in future Anthony would like to be able to offer things like Father Christmas cruises so people can travel to Springfields and back by narrowboat.
