Welcome to Tameside Canal Boat Trust
Come and enjoy your local canal!
Take a ride on our boat Still Waters
From Portland Basin Museum
Why not join us on board our narrow boat Still Waters, for a relaxing Boat Trip along the Historic Ashton Canal from Portland Basin, Ashton-under-Lyne?
Our public trips are 40 minutes (return), long enough to see the view that you don't see from the street.
While you relax on board you will learn about local heritage, see and feel the history of Ashton-under-Lyne!
Our boat has a wheelchair lift which makes Still Waters fully accessible for all friends and family.
Narrow Boat - Still Waters is 72 feet long and seats 51 people. It is manned entirely by volunteers from Tameside Canal Boat Trust providing boat trips along our local Heritage network of Canals - from Portland Basin in Ashton-under-Lyne, Tameside.

Saturdays & Sundays
