Contact and Location
Willow Wren Training is based at our private canal centre "Nelson's Wharf", Rugby Road Stockton, near Southam, Warwickshire. The centre is just 8 miles south of Rugby so we are in the heart of the country with easy access from all directions.
Based on the delightfully rural part of the Grand Union Canal, the area represents a perfect training ground with long wide stretches to practise steering, broad locks, plenty of winding, (turning), options and access to the narrower characteristics of the Oxford Canal. We also have a restored canal arm entrance to practice manoeuvring and mooring in restricted spaces.
The bespoke Training Centre, built in 2014, is ideal for training in comfortable surroundings using modern teaching aids and has the perfect space for shore based courses.
