Waterways Experience Canal boat trip

Today (2/08/2017)  we took a group on a Canal boat at the Waterways Experience in Hemel Hempstead. Even the weather (a typical English summers day) didn’t dampen our spirits if we were a little damp on the outside as we sailed ?? down the Grand Union canal, even stopping for a fish n chips lunch.

Waterways Experience are a registered charity and operate three large canal boats from a beautifully landscaped boatyard on the Grand Union Canal just to the south of Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire.  

Their mission is to promote well-being by providing affordable canal boat trips particularly for the disadvantaged.   As well as day trips all year round, we provide very special holidays for  teenagers with learning difficulties or other disadvantages. Operating without any paid employees.  As volunteers, what makes us tick is the satisfaction of being able to share our passion for the waterways and canal boating with people normally excluded from this pastime.
