Alizee with the boatBuddy


Welcome to

Sadly, due to a number of reasons, Jenny has now decided to close The Godalming Packetboat Company and will no longer be operating horse drawn barge trips.

However. the lovely Historic Horse-Drawn Boat "IONA" has now moved to Tiverton in Devon and joins the Brind family at Tiverton Canal Co  who already operate a Horse-Drawn Barge on the Grand Western Canal in Tiverton. EX16 4HX
