Bradford on Avon Branch

Please see our dedicated website for more information about public boat trips.

Situated at the Bradford on Avon Wharf Cottage, this branch has the Canal Trust Cafe with both hot and cold refreshments as well as a small shop. Also available are trips on the ‘Barbara McLellan’ boat. The address is Wharf Cottage, 15 Frome Road, Bradford on Avon.

The Bradford on Avon Branch has a thriving Volunteer group who manage, maintain and operate the Trust’s popular trip boat Barbara McLellan. As well as this our volunteers look after the gardens and grounds of the Canal Trust Cafe which have won awards in the Bradford on Avon gardens competition. The Canal Trust Cafe is managed on our behalf by Victoria and Tarkan Kisioglu.

We are always keen to welcome new volunteers whether you are interested in gardening, helping to maintain or crew the boat or to help us manage the Branch. Necessary training and support are always available as is a warm welcome.
