Working narrowboat at Glascote Locks, Staffordshire
Working narrowboat at Glascote Locks, Staffordshire
Narrowboat "Emu" was built in 1926 at Yarwoods, and has been fully refurbished in 2011. It retains its Bolinder 15hp engine, which smokes and chunters throatily!
Beyond the boat is Glascote Top Lock, near Tamworth.

Today, "Emu" is carrying a consignment of coal towards Coventry.
