"Hazel" is a wonderful boat. Built 103 years ago to carry salt, she became a housebouat in 1951 and was recently lovingly restored by craftspeople of the Wooden Canal Boat Society (a registered charity) to provide uplifting holidays on the canals of England. Towed by the motorboat "Forget me Not", she will take you on a wonderful journey through a peaceful land. You will have a crew of WCBS volunteers to navigate the boats.
