Thursday 21st July:    Boat trip to Hanham Lock

The Flower of Bristol has been hired for our exclusive use leaving the Bristol Packet Office, near the SS Great Britain, at 12.30 pm for Hanham Lock.  For those who have not done the trip before, please be aware that there is a steep flight of stone steps to access the boat.  We will be due back at 4.30 pm so, when we are given a time to get back on board, please don’t exceed it because it will be calculated to catch the tide.

At Hanham Lock there are two pubs but, when we were there last time, they had difficulty getting meals out quickly enough.  You are welcome to bring a packed lunch to eat there (not on the boat) or pre-order.  The boat is fully licenced, no BYO allowed.

Numbers are limited so please book places as soon as possible.  Members (no charge) and guests are welcome, the guest cost is £16.50.  Pill and Shiplovers have also been invited.
