06-06-2013 : CANAL BOAT FAMILY FUN DAY AT BINGLEY FIVE RISE

Canal Boat Holiday guests cruising the Leeds And Liverpool Canal on Sunday can moor up at the Bingley Five Rise Locks to learn all about the wildlife and history of these famous locks.

A day of activities will enable families to find out more about the wildlife that can be found on the canal as well as learning about what life was like on a historic working boat over 60 years ago.

Education volunteers from the Trust’s Explorers education programme will be leading a wildlife trail around North Bog, offering an I Spy quiz along the towpath and running a range of other fun colouring and origami activities to help families learn a bit more about the waterways and Bingley Five Rise Locks.

In addition the historic working Canal Boat Kennet will be moored up with members of the ‘Friends of Kennet’ on hand to explain what life was like on the working waterways.

Activities will also be taking place on the Angus Ferguson community Barge.

Refreshments are available in the Five Rise Locks café and kids can also try their hands at the QR Code Trail.
