On Saturday 5th November Nutfield and our “boat moving team” will begin the challenge of towing Raymond from Braunston to Tring for essential restoration to Raymond’s cabin. This is a major project that will involve the replacement of the existing wooden outer cabin, interior restoration, new paintwork and sign writing throughout December.
All of this work is necessary to preserve Raymond for years to come. It is being funded from generous donations and fund raising from our Patron, Members and the Public over recent years.
The boats will be setting off from Braunston Marina at 9am heading through Braunston Locks, Braunston Tunnel and the Long Buckby flight by the end of the day. They are expected to arrive in Tring by the end of November.
If you would like to support this project and others we have planned in the future, we are always looking for new members with an interest in working boat heritage. You can join us online for just £10 per year.
