About us

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.

 

The Wool Boat is planning to be open on Wednesday.

    As the weather is set fair and nice. 
 The Wool Boat crew are planning to be open on Wednesday, then again over the coming weekend. 
 
However because of the present virus situation we're afraid that we can't allow you to come on to the boat, so we don't all get too close to each other. 
So what we are going to do, when the weather is fit, is to serve you on the towpath, bringing samples out to you. 
This may take a little longer but at least we'll all be getting some fresh air.
 We are acting on all the government recommendations about hand washing, we will provide hand sanitizer and disposal gloves, we can take card payments.

So come and get your yarn in the fresh air  

Open at The Slipway Pub on Crabtree Lane near Burscough (L40 0RN) from 1-4 Wednesday the 12th of August the onto Parbold to be open for at the weekend 

The Slipway is open for drinks and food again 

Any questions feel free to ring us on 07931 356204
