We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Sydney Wharf has been a busy wharf for many years.

Coal from the Somerset Coalfield was unloaded here, as were slates and agricultural products. Fly boats left from here as well – fast boats pulled by teams of horses. Today you can hire boats from the wharf.
