At over 70 feet long and 15 feet wide the Elsdale is the largest electric wide-beam
barge operating on the UK’s inland waterways, providing room for up to 60 pass angers
or a full class of pupils.
The Elsdale is operated by Groundwork Thames Valley, an environmental charity. She
is moored at Packet Boat Marina on the Grand Union Canal in Uxbridge, West London,
which provides easy cruising into the beautiful Colne Valley Park.
From onboard the Elsdale our professional crew offer a range of activities for schools,
community groups and private hire. All our trips provide a creative and hands-on
experience to discover and explore the inland waterways from the safety and comfort
of the Elsdale. Groundwork would like to thank both The City Bridge Trust and General
Mills Foundations for their generous support of the project.
