  • British Waterways

    British Waterways are no more and the owner of the boat named his after their demise - so I guess the name lives on.

    Sad. The end of an era.

      Not sad at all. Canal And Rivers Trust are doing a much better job. They actually want people to use the canals and tow-paths unlike the bone idle civil servants of BW who resented anything which caused them to have to do any work. I suspect the barge is an old BW work boat which is why it would have had the name painted on it.
      Best wishes

        A lovely, tranquil scene. Until I unexpectedly got married in my (very) late 30's I planned to live on a narrowboat when I retired.

          Colleague of mine did just that, met and moved in with a lovely lady who lived on a narrowboat.
          She made and sold stuff at craft fairs also from the boat too.
          Met her whilst we were running a cable across the canal, must be the shortest submarine cable in the world.
          Envied him rotten at the time, she was gorgeous too which made it seem almost perfect.

            I believe in its early days BW operated a fleet of cargo carrying boats so this may be one of those, or a replica (like the large number of "Fellows Morton & Clayton" vessels you see everywhere!).
