New Horizons is a purpose built 70ft Narrowboat. She is equiped to take people with disabilities on trips on the canal. She was launched in 1981 and is currently in her 31st year of cruising. The baot has a lift to enable people with mobility issues to enter the main cabin and a fully accessible toilet. Trips are available from April to October, morning, afternoon, all day and in the summer months during the evenings. The trip can go either towards Poynton or towards Whaley Bridge dependant on the requirements of the party or at the skippers discretion. All parties must have at least one person who has a disability or mobility issue. Age related mobility issues are acceptable. Our current clients include, local support groups, church groups, care homes and families. See us at Local festivals throughout the year.

Yes we welcome dogs as part of the group. Just to be aware that there may be limited opportunities to get off this would need to be discussed with the Skipper.
