The first Gathering was organised as part of the Celebr18th Festival in Lichfield on Saturday 2nd October, to celebrate a time when canals were the new mode of transportation.
Shows in 2007 had more than their fair share of bad weather, but we made it to most of them!
In 2005 there was a Mayday Gathering.
The fourth Huddlesford Boat Gathering took place on 19th September 2009, once again it was a very happy and successful occasion, made even better by the beautiful weather.
We held the fifth Huddlesford Boat Gathering on 17th September 2011, and it was another very happy and successful event, despite an unpromising weather forecast.
Held over the weekend of 21st - 22nd September.
This was the first two-day event and marked the 25th anniversary of the trust and proved a great success.
The weekend of 19th - 20th September was blessed with sunny weather. The car park was filled to over-flowing, while the banks from Streethay to Whittington were lined with narrowboats.
