Re-caulking of Autherley - AAP09877
Autherley is one of the few surviving wooden narrowboats. She is a former tug which used to pull coal boats from Cannock Chase to Wolverhampton. She was also used as an iceboat, being used to keep the canals free of ice in the winter. There are conflicting histories of Autherley, one saying that she was built for the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal and one for the Shropshire Union Canal. It is also unclear whether she was built in the 1930’s as a motor boat or converted then from a horse boat. Either way, she is at least 75 years old and possibly older.
