A former working canal narrow boat, Buckden, built by Harland & Wolff in 1937, arrived on Friday afternoon at Audlem Wharf.

She delivered two boxes of books loaded at Dadford's Shed on the Stourbridge Canal.


Care on the Cut

The books are further supplies for CanalBookShop at Audlem Mill of the book by Dr Della Sadler-Moore (who lives in Stourbridge), Lorna York and Christopher M Jones -- "Care on the Cut" -- the very well researched story of the boaters' nurse Sr. Mary Ward at Stoke Bruerne, and more generally health care on the Grand Union Canal.
