Bedford Boat Club - Founded originally in 1950, Bedford Boat Club was instrumental in the formation of the Great Ouse Restoration Society.  With Bedford isolated from the rest of the Great Ouse navigation by derelict locks and a weed-choked channel, the club called a meeting on 20th February 1951 to gain support for restoration of the waterway.  The meeting, attended by naturalist Peter Scott and IWA founder Robert Aikman, resulted in the formation of the G.O.R.S. and the eventual re-opening of the navigation all the way to the sea in 1978.  B.B.C is now a small but active boat club providing social events and moorings for members at its site between Cardington Lock and Priory Marina.
