Read about the lost art of building wooden narrow boats.

Birmingham Canal Navigations 1950-1977

Compiled by Mike Harrison and published by the Club, this new book follows a photographic journey through the BCN at a time when the sights and sounds of this once heavily industrialised area could still be experienced, before the destruction of the many iconic buildings. It has been very well received with excellent reviews in the waterways press such as Waterways World, NarrowBoat, Towpath Talk, Canal Boat, The Blackcountryman, Boundary Post, the BCNS Journal.
