This month sees the 200th anniversary of the construction of the Wootton Wawen Aqueduct on the Stratford Canal.

In celebration of this, an informal gathering of boats will take place over the weekend of Saturday 19-Sunday 20 October, with a re-enactment of the opening planned to take place at midday on the Saturday.

There is no limit on the numbers of boats that can attend - although the mooring capacity within the basin at Wootton Wawen is limited. Depending on boat size, some 20-30 boats can be accommodated within the basin itself, after which the moorings will extend up and down the canal as required.

Entry forms and further information from: clive.henderson@waterways.org.uk or ian.fletcher@waterways.org.uk . Please use ‘ WW 200 ’ as the subject title of your

e-mail.
