Synopsis:
In 1950, the author was 17 years old and eager to experience life as a working boatman, one of hundreds whose craft whose craft still plied inland waterways from London to Liverpool, from Hull to the Bristol Channel. In this book, he describes his experiences and what it was like. The colour, variety and economic contribution of the canals in the 1950s can be judged from the list of the cargoes Foxon carried or saw- from the traditional coal, gravel and timber, to bentonite and borax, tomato puree and canned tomatoes, nuts and bolts, flint and flour, dustbins, matches and wheelbarrows, and even dates for making HP sauce.
