Home to a team of enthusiastic volunteers with a passion for boat building, you are certain of a friendly welcome and a hearty chat as they share their skills, knowledge and learnings.The team enjoy teaching the skills of traditional boat building, working with all ages, from school children to retirees and those in between, the satisfaction of carving and shaping wood towards a completed boat – which will hopefully float! – is plain to see.

There are many opportunities to get involved at the Boatshed, whether it be to come along and work on a boat building or woodwork project you’ve always dreamed of bringing to fruition, or join the team to lend a hand whilst they work on their latest project.

Admission is free. Opening times vary but there are volunteers there most days.
