About Us

The Lyneal Trust is a registered charity that provides canal and canalside holidays for people with disabilities, illness or injury, or any other vulnerability and their family, friends and carers who may accompany them.

Based at Lyneal Wharf in beautiful Shropshire the Trust owns and maintains three canal boats, the Shropshire Lass II, Shropshire Maid and Shropshire Lady, and Wharf Cottage and Chalets which are all specially designed for people with disabilities.

All our facilities can be hired separately or in combinations.

The charity is run by a group of willing volunteers, many of whom give their time meeting and greeting holiday makers and skippering day trips on the Shropshire Lady, as well tending the gardens and grounds, maintaining the boats and chalets, and just keeping everything going !

The Lyneal Trust is a Shropshire Council supported Charity.
