Nutfield stars at Braunston
TRADITIONAL WORKING BOAT pair Nutfield and Raymond (pictured) will be the stars of this year’s Braunston Historic Narrowboat Rally, which marks the 80th anniversary of Nutfield being built for the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company.
They will be joined by around 80 historic boats taking part in the daily parades of craft which make a memorable sight for visitors – and a challenge for the steerers. The event on 25-26 June will also feature trade stands, society stalls, a real ale tent, food and music. Entry is free but parking costs £10. For more go to braunstonmarina.co.uk
