Tiverton Canal Co is a small, privately owned, family run, Mid Devon Canal Tourist Attraction, and is home to the Last Horse-Drawn Barge in the West Country, also The Ducks Ditty Cafe Bar and a great selection of Hire Boats. This canal attraction operates on the beautiful Grand Western Canal, often referred to as the Tiverton Canal, by locals and visitors alike.

The company, originally named The Grand Western Horseboat Co, was established in July 1974 by Tony Stockwell. In 1985 the company was purchased by Pat & Ray Brind moving to Devon from Newbury in Berkshire. In 2006 Philip (son of Pat & Ray) and Jacquie (Phil's wife) took the reins, changing the name to Tiverton Canal Co.

Now together with their much valued staff, are proud to continue the tradition of Horse-Drawn Barges in Devon, now one of the very last of its kind in the UK.
