Boats of the Basingstoke Canal

boats of the basingstoke canal

Based on a series of articles written by Tony Harmsworth for the Basingstoke Canal Society's newsletter, this book was first published in 1969. It described his grandfather's carrying business and boat building at Ash Vale and had details of the boats that operated on the canal during its commercial days. A second edition added information about some of the boats that came onto the canal during its restoration in the 1970s and 80s. This edition now updates this information and adds historic photographs of many of the old boats described as well as those that may be seen on the canal today.
