The 12 seater ‘Marsden Shuttle’ boats run between Marsden Station and Tunnel End Cottages from early spring until the end of October each year and is operated by volunteers. In the summer we try to run it every day.
Volunteers undergo a programme of training and, if they wish, have the opportunity to train for a Certificate of Community Boat Management and become an authorised skipper for the Shuttle.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping to crew our boats!

Volunteers get involved in general canal maintenance tasks; here preparing to paint Lock 24E at Slaithwaite.
Work parties take place on alternate Fridays throughout the year (weather permitting). Please contact organiser Trevor Ellis on 01484 534666 for further information, including dates and venues of future working parties.
