Canal Boat - - Back Cabin: -

This is a con­verted Town Class work­ing boat, orig­i­nally con­structed by Har­land & Wolff as a butty to carry cargo for the Grand Union Canal Com­pany.

Baildon was con­verted in 1972-3 by Mal­colm Braine of Nor­ton Canes to a trad style, with a boat­man’s cabin and en­gine room. In 1998, the War­wick­shire Fly Boat Com­pany re-bot­tomed the hull with a 10mm steel base­plate. In 1990, it was fit­ted with a new Rus­sell New­bery DM2 en­gine. It can sleep up to seven and is equipped with a diesel stove for cook­ing, a fridge/freezer, a bath and a Porta Potti wc.

Baildon is not so much look­ing for a new owner as a pas­sion­ate boater to cher­ish it for many years. (All the pho­tos show the boat today, ex­cept the one above left which shows her in days gone by with fel­low work­ing boat Sud­bury) aque­duct­bro­ker­age.co.uk 01270 525046 A clas­sic nar­row­boat with a long his­tory that can sleep up to seven
