BRAUNSTON - THE NARROWBOAT VILLAGE a) Braunston and its Narrowboats b) Braunston – The Last Great Boat Show 1999: Running time 93 mins
This is a compilation of two linked videos:-
They call the town “The centre of the Waterways”. Today the phrase could not be more suited as Braunston is now the home of many well respected inland marine businesses. From the coming of the Oxford Canal the town developed a canal-orientated theme. It became an important transhipment centre which developed with the linking of the Grand Junction Canal. It also became a boatbuilding town and home to some of the most famous of historical businesses to be found on the canals. This video looks through archive photographs of the town’s past and the events which made the waterway history of Braunston. Through modern film the present and the relevant past form a linked backdrop to this centre of the waterways. The magnificent Braunston Boat Show is visited with all its spectacle of historic boats, shows and fireworks, which all centre around the town’s superb marina development.
1999 saw the end of the long running and well loved Braunston Boat Show”. Of particular interest were the boat parades and in response to many requests we are proud to be able to let those memories flood back through this film. This production is a tribute to all those who made this marvellous event so wonderful.
