Moored working boat near Huddlesford in Staffordshire
This is the working narrowboat "Darley" on the Coventry Canal, looking towards Willington and Tamworth.

"Darley was built by Harland and Wolff Ltd. at Woolwich in January 1937. The metal cabin is more recent. She was commissioned by the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company Ltd. and named after Darley Dale and was initially intended for pairing with the butty, 'Denton'. She carried loads from Birmingham to London until the advent of nationalisation in 1948 when British Waterways took over and kept her until 1962". (Quoted text from National Historic Boats website).
