Vanehill take horse drawn barge trip

Vanehill residents enjoy horse-drawn barge trip

This week (September 2017) Residents from Vanehill went on a horse-drawn barge trip up the Tiverton canal.

The ‘Tivertonian‘ is one of the last remaining horse-drawn barges in the UK. Holding 75 passengers, the return trip lasts 2 1/2 hours, allowing a break at East Manley. Where the residents can go for a walk to see the Aqueduct and/or meet the horse as he/she rests in the shade of a tree.

During the unique journey, residents and fellow passengers were told memorable tales and historical facts. They also got to enjoy two minutes of silence, to really appreciate the peace and tranquility of travelling this way.
