Birdswood runs scheduled trips throughout the year, open to all members of the public. You can purchase a ticket at the boat, but to avoid disappointment you can pre-book your ticket by phone. Please note that at the moment we are not offering online bookings, although this facility will be added in the near future.

Scheduled trips are currently motor driven, although we hope to be able to offer horse drawn trips on special occasions in the near future (trips will cost an extra £1 per person). The boat can hold up to 50 people, although initially numbers will be limited to 30 until we can confirm there are no issues with the reduced depths in places. There is no bar but passengers are welcome to bring their own refreshments.

Trip times: 10:30, 2:00, every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday

(Trips last approximately 2 hours)

Prices: - Owing to issues beyond the control of the FCC, we cannot currently run our full intended service to wind at High Peak Junction. As such, trips will go to the Swing Bridge and then reverse back. Therefore we are offering the trips at the reduced fare shown below. You may also be asked to complete a questionnaire.

If you would like to take a trip on Birdswood, either turn up at Cromford Wharf for one of our scheduled trips, or pre-book by phone (see the contacts page)







Horse drawn trips will cost an additional £1 per person when they are up and running. Discounts may be made for group bookings or private charters - please phone 07552 055 455 for more information.
