The Idle Women will be closing the Goole at War event at the Yorkshire Waterways Museum this year! waterwaysmuseum.org.uk

A double bill of theatre, poetry and music to whisk you back to the days of World War II. A shortage of crews to keep the working boats going brought a new breed of boater to the canal. Young women, later nicknamed the Idle Women, who took on the challenge of managing a pair of 72’ narrow boats and 55 tons of cargo.

Come and enjoy Isobel’s War (Kate Saffin) and Idle Women and Judies (Heather Wastie), as they follow the routes worked by lesser known women including Daphne March who worked on the Heather Bell throughout the war, on a route from Worcester to Tipton and Cannock, and then by Nancy Ridgway, over the Chesterfield, and from Liverpool to Leeds.

Definatley - Goole is a true gem of a location. Also If you haven't seen the Yorkshire Waterways Museum then perhaps a visit is in order! (After all its the top visitor attraction according to Trip Advisor for area. see the reviews and decide for yourself.

Yorkshire Waterways Museum is indeed a lovely place to visit. Goole itself, not so much :-)
went on the boat trip around the docks a few weeks ago.....was very interesting seeing big container ships being unloaded from close up and only £8 for an adult and child
Don't go to Goole. It's a dump, but, it does have a big Tescos...
