Saddleworth Canal Cruises, is home to the Pennine Moonraker - the only narrow boat operating on the Uppermill section of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.

From pig roast to educational trips for schools, everyone will enjoy a cruise on the Pennine Moonraker. With excellent onboard facilities, including a licensed bar and a comprehensive galley offering an extensive menu, a journey along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal will be a memorable experience. The boat sails through 2 restored locks to Dobcross and returns to Uppermill.

The Pennine Moonraker is berthed on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal next to the Saddleworth Museum. The Saddleworth Museum car park is right next to the boat. This car park, like others in Uppermill, is pay and display and gets very busy.

Fully equipped to take you on boat trips through Uppermill and beyond, activities include:
• Day trips
• Private functions
• Corporate entertainment
• School trips
• History of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal
• Date information about the restoration work

Why not combine your boat trip through Uppermill with stopping off a bite to eat in one of the many, lovely village pubs, cafes or restaurants, or stay over night and enjoy one of Saddleworth’s fantastic summer festivals.
