Saturn offers a unique opportunity for pupils
to experience the working environment and conditions of the canal boatmen of
the Victorian era. The boat travels the canals of the North West and North
Wales, her original working area, where she is very much part of the local
The Saturn Project has a number of
volunteers, all very knowledgeable about the boat, the people who worked her
and the canals she travelled. They will be on hand for your visit to show
the children round the boat and answer their questions. A visit to Saturn
makes a great focal point for history of waterways and historic transport
We work with The Canal & River Trust
education department and their Canal & River Explorers scheme which already
has worksheets on various aspects of Saturn and her history.
We are happy to help if you wish to produce your own material.
