Community Work Barge Trips


"Diana" on the Kennet and Avon canal
"Diana" on the Kennet and Avon canal

Since 1995 the Rotary Club of Abingdon Vesper has been running trips on the Kennet and Avon canal, giving many local groups the opportunity to have a wonderful day out on a barge. Each year we hire a barge for four weeks to provide special days out for a range of people of all ages for whom such an activity really makes a difference.

The specially-designed barge is built to accommodate people with physical disabilities and is maintained by Bruce Boats, a branch of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust.


Unfortunately due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation we will not be running any barge trips in 2020

If your organisation is interested in taking part in the future, please fill in the contact form.
