Tooley’s Boatyard Trust

Tooley’s Boatyard Trust promotes the history and heritage of Tooley’s Boatyard.

Situated in the heart of Banbury on the South Oxford Canal, this has one of the oldest working dry docks on the Inland Waterways, working continuously since 1778. The site also includes a blacksmith’s forge and carpenter’s workshop used for building traditional wooden boats.

The Trust provides guided tours of the boatyard and boat trips. There is a wide range of unique gifts, souvenirs, canal maps and books are available from the shop. You can go over to a separate website for Tooley’s Boatyard Trust.
