Boxing day boating in Berkhampsted

This was a lovely sunny break in the weather. Amazingly there were no other boats moving, at least none that I came across. There is loads of industrial history in Berkhampsted, the history boards along the canal give a good insight to the heritage. From the 1067 castle to timber goods for the Crimea war effort and barge building the town made a significant contribution. Now it is mainly a commuter and market town.

The most life seen today were the Boxing day after-dinner walkers. Most boaters seemed to be hunkered down in their boats, which come in many shapes and sizes.  This one seems to have a very durable “canopy” on it!
