The Canal boat “George Watson Buck”
The ‘George Watson Buck’, a 12-seater canal boat, operated by the Llanymynech Wharf Group is moored at Llanymynech Wharf.   She takes passengers on short trips covering two countries. When it arrived in 2005 it became the first non-maintenance boat on the canal at Llanymynech for sixty years. There is only a very short length of canal navigable but the boat can run as part of a package visit including guided walks. The boat was given to the local community but has been prepared and is maintained by the Llanymynech Canal Wharf group..
The colour photo to the right shows the ‘George Watson Buck’ moored at the Llanymynech Wharf.
