New Horizons, the Trust’s Canal Boat, was launched by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1981. It is operated as a registered charity, Stockport Canal Boat Trust for Disabled People (Charity No: 1075844), established by the Mayor of Stockport, L Gordon Bayley MBE, in 1980. Gordon Bayley organised the fund raising, design and building of the Boat as he was a keen canal boater as well as having an interest in disabilities. Consequently the facilities are designed to assist disabled people and those with limited mobility.
