MOWS will be pleased to provide a speaker for your group or event.

Our illustrated presentations about the Melton Mowbray Navigation and Oakham Canal have proved popular with a variety of groups including Local History Societies, Women’s Institutes and a specialist transport groups. They cover the history of the waterways up to the present day and include an overview of our current activities and the Society’s aspirations for the future. They can be tailored to suit your specific needs.

It is our custom not to charge a fee but to invite a donation to support our activities.
Please contact Mick Clowes  for further information or to make a booking.
