Including narrowboats, river cruisers, yacht charter, cruising, based or starting in Retford.
This market town on the banks of the River Idle has a rich past and is said to be one of England’s oldest chartered boroughs. It sent representatives to Parliament as early as 1315. With foundries and paper mills among its industries, it can claim to be one of Nottinghamshire’s most important towns in the north of the county. A key destination on the East Coast rail line, it was once a staging post on the Great North Road. In the 18th century James Brindley designed the Chesterfield-Repton Canal to bring wide barges and their cargoes to the River Trent.
In this section we give details of self-catering boats for hire on canals, rivers, lakes; yacht charter, flotilla sailing, cruising with or without crew, sail training, etc. in Retford or surrounding areas.
