WORLD OF WATERWAYS VOLUME 1: a) Boater’s Gathering (At The Black Country Museum) b) Anderton Re-Opened! Total running time 88 mins
This is a compilation of two videos:-
Every two years working narrowboats both preserved and still working gather together at the Black Country living Museum at Tipton near Dudley, West Midlands. A huge variety of craft are present representing the rich carrying background our canals have to offer, From Tankers to tugs, “Joshers” to “Admirals” all are present. In this volume we interview crews, describe the boats and even take a trip out on the Old Main Line on a tug with a train of boats in tow, very varied with some archive material. Running time 50 mins.
March 26th 2002 saw the Anderton boat lift restored to traffic. We celebrate the restoration and look back over the colourful history of this "Cathedral of the Waterways". Archive and modern footage combine to remember this unique day. A tribute to this event and all those who repaired and re instated it to such a high standard for so many years to come. Running time 38 mins.
