Saturn is a unique canal narrowboat. She is the last horse-drawn Shropshire Union Canal Fly-boat in the World originally built to travel non-stop, day and night, carrying perishable goods. Over 100 years old, she has been fully restored to her former glory; not only to preserve her for posterity but to educate present and future generations about our waterways, narrowboats and horse-boating.

Saturn is run entirely by volunteers and we are always looking for more enthusiastic helpers! See our Volunteers page for more details.

Saturn and its expert helpers offer the opportunity for school children to experience the working environment and conditions of the canal boatpeople of the Victorian era. See our Education page.
