Visitors could try canal boating for free yesterday as part of Drifters’ National Open Day.

Budding boat enthusiasts could enjoy a short trip on one of the holiday narrowboats and take the helm under the guidance of one of the instructors.

There were boats to look around, refreshments available, games and competitions.

They could also enjoy the tranquillity of the local picturesque rivers and discover the abundance of wildlife that lives on the Fens.
