A Friends of Honeywood Museum Event

 
A Talk from Alun Thomas, London Canal Museum
 
Until the early 1960s the River Thames was thronged with vessels of all shapes and sizes bringing goods to London. Of these, lighters were the most numerous although the most insignificant in appearance. They played a vital role in moving cargos from ship to shore and from dock to upriver wharf. These unique vessels had no means of propulsion beyond the ingress and egress of the tide.
 
Alun will explain how the trade developed and shed light on the life of the lightermen whose skill controlled these barges.

Seats £7 (£6 Members) - refreshments free
 
To book, please email susan.hoskin@gmail.com or 07721 852378.
