forging-ahead

Forging Ahead is a fascinating look at Tooley's historic boatyard in Banbury. This almost hidden jewel in the north Oxfordshire market town has been a well known feature of the Oxford canal for the past 240 years.

The author, Matthew Armitage, has been the director of the business for the past 16 years. Using archive material as well as his own intimate knowledge of the site, he describes the yard's tumultuous and challenging past. With a wealth of rich, and many previously unseen illustrations, this is a must read for anyone with an interest in the history of boatbuilding and canals alike.
