Do you fancy a trip from King’s Lynn to Wisbech on board a restored fishing boat from the 1900s? If yes, you’re in luck.
The fully-restored 1900 Baden Powell is setting sail from King’s Lynn to Wisbech later this month, with passenger trips available on July 22, 25 and 27.
The boat was built in 1900 in a boatyard on the River Nar by Walter Worfolk. He built the 34ft Baden Powell for £50.
A spokesman said: “Volunteers of the King’s Lynn Worfolk Boat Trust spent a decade building the Baden Powell and have saved an important part of the heritage of King’s Lynn.”
Trips to Wisbech are running over three separate days from Sunday July 22.
