GATHERING OF HISTORIC BOATS
Audlem 24/25 July 2021
This event is now one of the most popular gatherings of historic ex-
At the canal wharf you will see Saturn, a 1906 Shropshire Union Canal fly boat, which often worked from Audlem, carrying cheeses and other goods loaded from the canal warehouse (now the Shroppie Fly pub). Fly boats were timetabled to work round the clock, with horses regularly changed along the route, and crews less frequently!
The event is free to attend. Please do not try to park at the canal wharf, as there is no public parking, but use the field by the canal bridge, just by the A529 turn to Market Drayton.
If you would like to enter your histotic boat, please phone 01270 811059,
or email email@example.com
This event has been cancelled.
(Next year’s event is on 30/31 July 2022)
