Meeting - Friends of Raymond and Nutfield

Wed, Jun 7th 2023 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Speaker CHRIS JONES (secretary)

Club members please log in for more information.

The Friends of Raymond was established as a charity on 1st September 1996, to save Raymond from being lost forever. Raymond, the last wooden working narrow boat, was launched at Braunston on 11th June 1958 and, through the determination of the first Friends, she was rebuilt and returned to Braunston on 3rd July 2000.

In July 2003 we acquired the motorboat Nutfield, and reunited the pair that, between 1968 and 1970, had worked together in the colours of Blue Line Canal Carriers Ltd, looking much as they do today,

By maintaining Nutfield & Raymond, presenting them to the public, and raising the money we need to do it, The Friends of Raymond is proud to play a part in keeping alive the sight, the sound, and the story of the working boats.
