Saturn Fly-boat

Waterways Heritage Afloat

The Society

Join us in the Shropshire Union Fly-boat Restoration Society and you will be a member of an enthusiastic group of like-minded people with a common cause - to keep Saturn safe and running for another 100 years. 

You will be among people who love our waterways, narrowboats, their history and working traditions with the option, if you wish, to do some boating or maintenance work. 

Members receive a regular newsletter and - fulfilling one of our other aims of researching and compiling information on fly-boats and their operation - we plan other publications.

 You can take part in all this or simply be an ‘armchair member’ – supporting the future of Saturn with your subscription, donation, or even bequest. We do need your help.
