Teds Mate's page

We have a mascot, Brindley the Teddy Bear, and he is always on the look out for new mates to come and visit him on the Wool Boat.

Here are a few of the new mates he has made over the last few years.

      Here Brindley crosses the Barton Aqueduct on the Bridgewater canal as it

                                  crosses the Manchester Ship Canal.

     Brindley was named by Laura Evans after James Brindley the canal engineer.

             As you can see Brindley is a Southport F.C. supporter as well :-)

       It's a bit of a secret, but if your bear, and it's got to be a bear, comes aboard The Wool Boat to meet and have his or her picture taken with Brindley you can have your yarn at "Ted's Mates" rates, price list here.

  Every one who's bear or person is in these images have agreed for us to use them , however if any causes offence and you would like us to remove them just let us know.

The Mystery Bear 

Brindley became mates with the mystery bear on The Wool Boat at Burscough Lancashire on the 5th of November 2016.

The mystery bears owner came along with her mum who bought some James C Brett's Cool Cotton yarn for crocheting with which she got at Ted's mates rates.

They had heard about Teds mates rates from The Wool Boat at the Yarnigans knit and natter in Maghull but didn't quite believe it until they boarded the boat J

Mystery Bear? Well no one could quite tell us his name!

This young chap had to find Barnaby bear from The Tarleton Day nursery some where new to go for the weekend. He came to visit Brindley on The Wool Boat at Burscough so along with Daisy bear they all became Ted's Mates.
