A narrowboat passes Bates Boatyard on the Aylesbury Arm
The boat is London & Midlands No 5, Grand Junction Canal
Bates Boatyard, Aylesbury Arm, Grand Union Canal
Bates Boatyard LinkExternal link is near Puttenham, on the Aylesbury Arm of the Grand Union Canal, immediately west of Lock No 11 and Bridge No 7. While most canal barges built since the mid 20th century have steel hulls this yard maintains the old traditions by restoring old wooden narrowboats and building new ones. This yard has a side slip to allow barges built on land to be launched into the canal.
The position of the triangular plot is interesting as it is in Drayton Beachamp parish, Buckinghamshire, but the north hedge is in Hertfordshire. It is also just into SP8814 but most of the towpath and some of the canal is in SP8813.
