Aims and Activities

Based on the banks of the River Stort near Harlow, we are a registered charity dedicated to providing the facilities for disabled people and people with special needs to enjoy boating on the river in our specially adapted wide beam canal boats. We make it possible for people with disabilities to have a day out, or a weekend break and enjoy a great experience exploring the Rivers Stort and Lee through the Essex and Hertfordshire country side. Everyone can have a go at steering and working the locks, or just relax and watch the wildlife and the world go by. We have three purpose built, fully centrally heated and accessible broad beam boats that enable everyone to take a full and active part in the boating experience – all year round. They have wet rooms, disability toilets, ramps, lifts, hoist points and fully equipped galleys for preparing meals. It also easy to moor up and stop off at one of the many nearby pubs and restaurants or enjoy a picnic on the river bank. A great way to take a day out – one of the core offerings is day trips along the river. Parties can be made up of charity/community group members or family and friends. Or Enjoy a relaxing weekend or holiday Our aim is to help people with any disability discover the joy of the river.
