Please join Woodland Heritage for a half-day visit to Peter Freebody & Co., Boatbuilders of the Thames for over 300 years.

We will visit the workshops of this long-established firm specialising in the construction, repair and restoration of traditional river craft including the iconic Slipper and Riva Launches. Our visit will follow the progress made by one of the workshop’s most important raw materials – wood – from its arrival in the yard, through the hands of the team of skilled craftsmen, to the exquisite finished article.
