Historic Boat Collection - Ferret

The motor narrowboat Ferret was built by WJ Yarwoods of Northwich in 1926. She worked for Fellows, Morton and Clayton on the Birmingham Canal Navigations (registration no 1231; Birmingham registration no 1492). She was paired with the boat Urmston.

Ferret is of composite construction, with wooden bottoms and steel hull sides. She is powered by a 15hp Bolinder engine and has a cargo capacity of 30 tons.

You can step aboard Ferret at Ellesmere Port and see what life would have been like for the family working on her.
