Today, Caddis artist Gemma Latham and the amazing chaps from M3 Industries installed the first stage of the workboat, Lady Brenda’s metamorphosis into Caddis and she is a treat to behold. We owe M3 Industries massive thanks for making sure the project was installed in a right timeframe and their dedication to doing this was incredible.
Tomorrow Caddis will set sail on a trip from Mirfield to Leeds – a journey that is longer than you might think. It involves sailing down the Calder and Hebble Navigation to Wakefield and then joining the Aire and Calder Navigation at Castleford – then up through the east side of Leeds to join the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in Leeds city centre. Two long days sailing and 21 locks. We are extremely grateful to the Safe Anchor Trust volunteer skippers who will be bringing Caddis and a fleet of four other boats in all to Leeds for the Waterfront Festival.
