About the Lass

 

The Shropshire Lass II is a purpose designed 70 foot holiday canal boat with accommodation for up to 8 people and finished to a high standard.

The Lass has a ramp, hydraulic lift and hydraulic steering in addition to the conventional tiller, which allow wheelchair users to take part in the running of the boat.  Wheelchair users are able to access all parts of the Lass including the bathroom which has been specifically designed for them.  The Lass has been designed to take wheelchairs up to a maximum width of 26” – the standard size for wheelchairs.

The Lass can sleep up to 8 people with 3 two tier bunk beds and a pull out double bed.  There are 2 toilets and a shower.  The Lass has central heating, fully equipped galley (hob, grill, oven, fridge, crockery, cutlery and kitchenware) and TV.

Please note hire of the Lass does not include pillows, bed linen, blankets or sleeping bags.

If there are wheelchair users in your holiday party, comfortable numbers are:

  • 2 wheelchair users and 6 able bodied
  • 3 wheelchair users and 4 able bodied

 

Standard ‘weekly’ hire is from Saturday arriving at 3pm and returning the Lass to the Wharf by 3pm the following Friday. This allows us time to prepare the Lass for the next hire.

 

There is ample parking available in the Trust’s own Wharf car park..

 

One of the Trust’s volunteers will meet you when you arrive and ensure you are familiar with the operation of the Lass before you set off.  They will give guidance with suitable routes depending on the length of your holiday.

 

We do ask that at all times there is one designated person in command and that person is familiar with and adheres to all health and safety requirements.  To ensure you are prepared for your holiday and enjoy the canal safely we recommend you read the Canal & River Trust’s boater’s guide.
