They will be open Thursday to Monday from 10am to dusk or 6pm (whichever is earlier).
They will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays — except for emergencies or by prior arrangements.All of their usual services will be available: Diesel, gas, pumpout & toilet fluids, water, & stove fuels.
You may not need these specific boat services for winter canal boating holidays but it's useful to know what's opening when planning canal boat holidays for October through to March. The water take on service for example is vital, and you ight just need an unplanned pump out.
