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.
The Trust has been given a 150-year lease by Cherwell District Council, for which we are extremely grateful. We now need to purchase the assets of the operating company, particularly the Dancing Duck.
We are also in discussions with the Council about opening up the towpath alongside the dry dock, to allow people to walk past Tooley's, across a pontoon bridge, and on to Lock29, the new hotel, etc.
In order to fund all these plans we need £50,000
Thank you for your support and good luck!
John Madden (Chair of Tooley's Boatyard Trust)
