Boats

Throughout the day people can wonder down to the canalside to enjoy the old working canal boats.  Amongst them will be the 115 year old Saturn, a National Historic Ship and the last surviving Shropshire UNion 'fly-boat'.  Visitors can venture on board for a look at life as it used to be!  Also not to be missed at 4pm is the amazing procession of boats through Lymm, marking a fantastic way to close the event.
