Britain by Barge Then and Now
In October 2019 Channel 5 Television came to Tooley’s Boatyard to film an episode of “Britain by Barge Then and Now“. The series featured Jenny Bond, Anne Diamond, Pete Waterman and Bill Oddie. Touring the canal network by boat, Tooley’s Boatyard were host to the group for part of this episode.
During the event, in front of a crowd of volunteers, it was announced that Tooley’s Boatyard Trust had secured a 150 year lease from Cherwell District Council. This will help ensure the future of Tooley’s Boatyard which up until this point was unable to plan its activities more than a year ahead.
