Music Impresario and steam enthusiast Pete Waterman will be unveiling our latest Red Wheel at Braunston Marina on 29th June 2024, at 10.00 am.  This will be part of the Braunston Marina Canal Rally that is taking place over the weekend 20/30 June 2024.

The Red Wheel celebrates the history of Braunston Wharf and will complement the Red Wheel further down the cut that highlights the Braunston Canal Village:  both are part of this key hub on the UK canal network.  It is planned that the Red Wheel will be placed on the waterside engine workshop facing the canal and the famous Horsley Ironworks Bridge.  The workshop was built during WWII – it is suggested by the Women’s Land Army.
