Canal Boat - - Directory -

I was Char­lie Atkins’ mate on the trip boat Lap­wing, and I learnt much about boat­ing from him. Sub­se­quently, I lived in the boat­men’s cabin on Pluto, trav­el­ling over all the Leeds & Liver­pool and get­ting to know many ex-canal work­ers, es­pe­cially in Burscough.
