Using Saturn…
Saturn can be booked to attend events, to be used as a schools educational resource (we are part of the Wild over Waterways (WoW) scheme (run by the Canal and River Trust and the Inland Waterways Association) or for filming and other promotional purposes. Please note – Saturn cannot be used for passenger carrying trips. Cost depends on the circumstances and also varies if a horse is required. We are a charity and must raise funds for the ongoing maintenance of Saturn. (To book Saturn please contact us via e-mail.)
