The Wool Boats crew plans for the 12th to the 18th of April 2021. We are open again! Started with a “soft” opening day in the sunshine opposite our moorings which went well. Now for the rest of the week we would love to see you back for a squidge and see the yarns and wools in proper colour, not on a computer screen. The plan is to be open in Burscough somewhere near The Wharf (L40 5RZ) on Wednesday the 14th from 10-3. Then all being well if we can get a mooring outside The Farmers Arms on New Lane (L40 8JA) for the weekend we will be open there from 10-3 on Saturday the 17th and Sunday the 18th. As we have done all through the lock downs you can make an appointment to collect from us at a time that is good for us all, please ring 07931 356204. As we are still being covid safe at the present time we are afraid we can’t let people on to the boat, we’ve not room for social distancing, so we are bringing baskets of yarn out to you. www.thewoolboat.co.uk Carole and Capt Col. 13.4.2021.

Where and when is The Wool Boat open?
The Wool Boat is based on the canal narrow boat “Emma Maye”. During the winter we are based on the Leeds and Liverpool canal in the Burscough area of Lancashire. Over the summer we cruise the inland waterways of the country. This means we will keep this website up dated as to where and when we plan to be open.
