About Us:

Tooley's Boatyard is a unique piece of canal history - in continuous working for over 200 years! Both it and the old Forge are Historic Monuments, and the yard holds many things to inform, excite, and amaze. 

We need your help so we can make this 'hidden gem' in the heart of Banbury into a fascinating heritage centre for young and old alike, easily accessible, with good provision for school groups, tourists and citizens of Banburyshire.

We have obtained a grant from the Architectural Heritage Fund towards the cost of an initial Viability Study, but need to raise matched funding of around £15,000.

We are also looking to raise a further £45,000 to transfer full ownership of the Boatyard to the Trust. This will ensure that Tooley's is kept forever as a working yard as well as a visitor centre.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

John Madden (Chair of Tooley's Boatyard Trust)
