Historic Narrowboat

We moored just along from Brighton, a Town Class working narrowboat. The Narrowboat Trust now has ownership and is in the process of restoring this working girl. Built by Harland and Wolfe in 1936 and known as a 'large Woolwich' Brighton was a class of boat designed to load directing to or from larger ships and cope with the Thames tidal river conditions. Brighton has a 5' deep hold, blimey that's as tall as me...
