TCCC

The Thrupp Canal Cruising Club was formed from the ideas of a small number of local boat owners in the early 1980s. It now has over 100 members and manages the moorings in the area on behalf of The Canal & River Trust.

Thrupp

Thrupp is a hamlet on the southern Oxford Canal with origins going right back to the early days of the canal when it was finally extended south from Banbury to its terminus at Oxford.

Fishing

As well as managing the boat moorings at Thrupp, the club also controls the fishing rights for the waters under its jurisdiction and issues fishing permits to anglers who wish to fish at Thrupp

TCCC Bookcase

The club's charity bookcase started by accident about 9 years ago when we had a jumble sale to raise some money for the TCCC charity of the day and a pile of books were left near the water point.
